RUSSIA CONTINUES TO USE TU-22M3 LONG-RANGE BOMBERS AGAINST ISIS IN DEIR EZZOR

Six Russian Tu-22M3 long-range bombers have once again delivered airstrikes against ISIS targets in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor, destroying two command centers, weapons and ammunition depots and militant manpower.


“On January 30, six Tu-22M3 long-range bombers of the Russian Aerospace Forces took off from an airfield located in the territory of the Russian Federation, flew over territories of Iraq and Iran, and carried out an airstrike on ISIS terrorists’ targets in the Deir Ezzor province of the Syrian Arab Republic,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

Despite constant Russian airstrikes, the situation in the city of Deir Ezzor remains tense. The Syrian army continues to fight against ISIS terrorists in order to link up the Deir Ezzor Airport with the rest of the government-held pocket.
