MOSCOW, October 24. /TASS/. Russian Aerospace Force is delivering airstrikes simultaneously in several districts of Syria to deprive terrorists of freedom of action, Gen Igor Konashenkov, the official spokesman for the Russian Defence Ministry told RT on Saturday.
"The main task is to shackle the terrorist groupings' actions on the Syrian territory," he said. "That's why we're delivering the airstrikes in different districts of Syria."
Priority in the selection of targets is given to command points, bunkers, and depots of munitions and explosives.
The data on the targets is carefully verified via several channels, including aerial and aerospace reconnaissance.
Gen Konashenkov said the airstrikes are delivered only at the installations, the association of which with the Islamic State grouping has been proved.
"Particular role is assigned to the data we're getting from the information center in Baghdad," he said.
Russia Aerospace Force crews started delivering strikes at the installations of the Islamic State on September 30 at a request from Syria's legitimate President Bashar al-Assad. The detachment the Russian Defence Ministry has deployed in Syria has more than fifty warplanes and helicopters .
Also, the Russian flotilla in the Caspian Sea delivered a strike with extended-range cruise missiles at the IS positions on October 7.
On the face of it, Russian officials have said this country does not plan to engage in whatever ground operations in Syria.
Russian pilots have made 934 combat sorties to-date and have destroyed 819 facilities controlled by terrorists. As many as 363 facilities were destroyed in the past seven days alone. Their scope includes 71 command points and communications depots, ten factories and workshops for manufacturing explosives, thirty depots for fuel, lubricants. munitions, and hardware, and 252 fortified strong points.
