Today, at 12:06 a.m., Tu-95MS bombers fired cruise missiles at objects of international terrorist groupings in #Syria.

The aircraft scrambled from the Engels airfield and flew over territories of #Iran and #Iraq.

In the Syria airspace, the strategic bombers fired Kh-101 cruise missiles at the most important #ISIS and #Jabhat_al_Nusra objects located in the provinces of #Deir_ez_Zor and #Idlib.

The unexpected strikes eliminated terrorists’ command posts, hardware and manpower concentration areas as well as ammunition depots.

The objective monitoring data has confirmed elimination of all assigned targets.
Su-30 and Su-35 fighters were covering the Tu-95MS bombers.

The strategic bombers successfully flew about 7,000 kilometers. They were in-flight refueled by Il-78 tanker aircraft.

The missile strikes were carried out against the ISIS objects in order to support offensive of the #Syrian_Arab_Army to eliminate the last terrorists’ bridgehead.
