BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – A Russian military helicopter carried out a strategic bombing against an Islamic State (ISIL) gathering at a base in the eastern countryside of Hama.

Using their powerful Mi-28 chopper, the Russian Air Force completely destroyed the Islamic State base that was used to house the terrorist group’s fighters in the town of ‘Uqayrbat.

As seen in the video footage above, the Russian Air Force successfully destroyed the base and an armored vehicle that was present at the bombing site.

With the Desert Hawks recent deployment to eastern Hama, the Russian Air Force has increased their number of attacks over ‘Uqayrbat in order to aid the Syrian Army and their allies in the region.
