Russian air grouping continues making precise attacks at the ISIS terrorists from the Hmeymim airbase

Russian air grouping continues making precise attacks at the ISIS terrorists from the Hmeymim airbase. 

Twenty-four hours a day UAV's are monitoring the situation in the ISIS activity areas. All the detected targets are effectively engaged day and night in any weather conditions.

Su-34 and Su-24M aircraft of the Russian air grouping in Syria performed over 20 sorties attacking 9 objects of ISIS terrorists.

As a result of 6 sorties from the Hmeymim airbase in the evening and at night, pinpoint strikes hit 3 facilities of terrorists’ infrastructure.

Accurate delivery of a concrete-piercing bomb BETAB-500 launched from a Su-34 aircraft near Raqqah destroyed a hardened command centre of one of the illegal armed groups as well as an underground bunker with explosives and ammunition depot.

At the Jisr al-Shughur district (Idlib), tactical bombers Su-24M eliminated storage bases for military hardware used by militants for preparation of terrorist attacks.

Moreover, an airstrike was made against a base of militants at the same district. It completely destroyed depots with ammunition and equipment situated at the base.

Direct hit of air bombs eliminated a workshop for equipment of all-terrain vehicles with large-caliber machine guns and other heavy armament.

Su-34 tactical bomber engaged an ISIS base near Maarrat Al-Nuuman (Idlib) with a guided air bomb KAB-500 during a pinpoint strike. According to the objective monitoring data, terrorist fortifications, ammunition and POL depots as well as 7 vehicles were destroyed.

It is to be emphasized that the possible circular deviation from the assigned target of the guided air bombs KAB-500 does not exceed 5 meters. In recent days, these and other precision weapons have been used against ISIS terrorist facilities: command centres, ammunition and POL depots, workshops where armament for terrorist attacks is produced.

Air Defence means were not detected in the action area of the Russian aircraft in Syria.

Despite that, Russian aircraft use special protection systems during the combat flights.

It is to be stressed that the cross on videos of objective monitoring is not the aiming mark for guided weapons.This is focusing point of the unmanned aerial vehicle carrying out monitoring of the results of target engagement.

All the Russian aircraft at the Hmeymim airbase are equipped with optoelectronic sighting systems, which allow to use both guided and unguided air munitions with high accuracy and guaranteed target destruction.

Su-34 bombers destroyed an ISIS 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. 

On the screen you can see that the direct hit of the aerial weapon at the mountain facility, detonation of explosives and multiple fires. The object was completely destroyed.

Su-24M bombers made an airstrike at the ammunition depot in the  uninhabited mountain area near Jisr al-Shughur. A large smoke cloud shows the direct target hit, which caused destruction of the facility.
