The Russian Air Force carried out a powerful series of airstrikes over the Al-Raqqa Governorate on Friday, hitting several targets belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the provincial capital and nearby Tabaqa Military Airport.

According to a source from the Syrian Air Defense, the Russian Air Force repeatedly struck ISIS’ positions at the Tabaqa Military Airport in order to obstruct the terrorist group from resupplying their fighters at Palmyra.

The source added that the Russian Air Force struck the Yarmouk District of Al-Raqqa and ISIS’ headquarters at the Tabaqa Military Hospital.

They’re not targetting civilians, they’re bombing terrorist armed gangs. BTW, there are areas in Raqqa where civilians have been able to put their hands on weapons and liquidated/ousted daeshbags… They’re no more at risk of collateral damages or casualties due to RuAF… But they’re at risk to be overwhelmed and slaughtered by fanatic idiots :/

RuAF : 6000 strikes in 6 months. USAF+allies : less than 1500 strikes over a year… It seems that aircrafts with pilots aboard are more efficient than drones where the pilot is thousand miles away and has the impression he’s playing a video-game… Russia is never joking when it comes to crush its ennemies…
