The Russian Aerospace Forces have destroyed more than 1,000 facilities belonging to international terrorist groups in Syria this past week, the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper said in its Friday edition.

According to the info-graphs published by the paper, the Russian Aerospace Forces performed over 360 combat sorties in the reported period.

Russian drones have also carried out over 140 reconnaissance flights and located over 190 objects of terrorist infrastructure.

The Russian Aerospace Forces have also played a critical role in the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) large-scale advance in central, as their chippers provide necessary air cover to the government forces.

i would have to disagree. prior to Russia joining the fight in 2015, everything was going to shit. follow the timeline. only after Russia stepped in and pounded the life out of isis did the tide start to turn (this much, is simply non-debatable, just fact). In addition, Russia killed the “living oil-pipeline” (remember that?) and exposed the culprits tied to isis, ie, turkey, israhell and murica being involved in the illegal oil trade.
