MOSCOW, October 9. /TASS/. Militants in Syria are sustaining substantial losses because of the Russian strikes and are forced to change their tactics, Deputy Chief of the General Staff, Lt. Gen. Igor Makushev told reporters on Friday.
"Militants are sustaining substantial losses under the strikes of Russian aircraft and have to change their tactics, to scatter their forces, to carefully disguise and hide in settlements," Makushev said.
In these circumstances the Russian Aerospace Forces continue systematic air strikes and increase their intensity to effectively destroy the targets," he added.
Makushev earlier said that Russia’s Aerospace Forces had made 67 sorties over the past 24 hours, attacking 60 terrorist facilities on Syrian territory.
Russian aircraft began to carry out surgical air strikes on Islamic State targets in Syria on September 30 at the request of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Russia does not plan to take part in ground operations in Syria.
