MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. Sukhoi Su-34, Su-24M and Su-25 aircraft of the Russian air grouping in Syria performed sorties attacking ten objects of IS [Islamic State] terrorists, the Russian Defence Ministry reported on its website.
"The Russian air grouping from the Hmeymim airbase continues delivering strikes on facilities of the Islamic State [IS] terrorist group. Over the past 24 hours the aircraft made 20 flights attacking ten targets of IS formations."
Su-25 attacked the terrorists’ training camp in Idlib. The bomb destroyed shelters and a facility where the militants were making explosives, including the Shahid belts.
Su-24M and Su-34 bombers attacked Jisr ash-Shugur’s eight facilities, destroying three ammunition dumps, where the stock detonated as it was hit by a KAB-500 air bomb.
"Su-34 bombers destroyed an IS hardened command centre near Raqqah using a concrete-piercing bomb BETAB-500. Massive explosion in the bunker shows that it had also been used by terrorists for storage of a large number of ammunition," the ministry’s website reads.
On Wednesday, Russia’s Federation Council empowered the president to use Russian military outside the national territory. The air operation was launched against Islamic State in Syria at the request of Syria’s President Bashar Assad. Earlier, Putin said that Russia would not be involved in operations on the ground.
Since Wednesday, Russian Air Force’s aircraft have been bombing Islamic State facilities located in Syria.
