BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The Russian Ministry of Defense said on Thursday that more than 23,000 militants were killed in Syria throughout 2018.

“In 2018, more than 23,000 terrorists were killed in Syria, in addition to destroying 159 tanks, 57 armored vehicles, more than 900 cannons and about 3 thousand machine gun-equipped cars belonging to terrorist groups,” the Russian Ministry of Defense’s statement began.

In addition to killing 23,000 in 2018, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that the grand total has exceeded over 87,000 militants since 2015.

“Since September 2015, more than 87,000 terrorists  and their leaders were killed and more than (4500) terrorists from the Commonwealth of Independent States were also killed,” the Ministry of Defense continued.
