MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. Several dozen terrorists, including 19 field commanders coming from the North Caucasus and Central Asia, were killed in Russia’s airstrike on February 28 near the Syrian community of Rasm al-Ais, Head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Department Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi said on Friday.
"On February 28, in the area of the community of Rasm al-Ais, 28 km southwest of Aleppo, two KAB-500 guided air bombs dropped from a Su-24 aircraft destroyed the headquarters of an illegal armed formation of Jabhat al-Nusra grouping [a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia]. The airstrike eliminated 67 terrorists, including 19 field commanders - natives of the North Caucasus and Central Asia," he said.
According to the Russian general, another 104 militants were wounded in the airstrike.
The Russian general reported earlier that Syrian districts hammered by Russian warplanes were under terrorists’ control. According to him, the terrorist groupings include over 1,000 militants that are natives of the North Caucasus.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier that about 4,000 natives of Russia were fighting for militants in Syria.
