Russian Tupolev Tu-95MS strategic bombers have delivered a strike with Kh-101 cruise missiles against the objectives of the Islamic State terrorist organization (outlawed in Russia) on the border of the provinces of Hama and Homs in Syria, Russia’s Defense Ministry reported on Wednesday.

"On July 5, the Tu-95MS strategic missile carriers, which took off from the Engels airfield on the territory of the Russian Federation, has performed a flight with aerial refueling and delivered a strike with the most advanced Kh-101 cruise missiles against the facilities of the ISIL [the former name of the Islamic State] terrorists on the border of the provinces of Hama and Homs (the Syrian Arab Republic)," Russia’s Defense Ministry reported.
