The official page of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that six TU-22M3 long-range bombers took off from Russia and carried out concentrated strikes with high-explosive fragmentation munitions around Al-Sakhnah and Arak villages east of Palmyra.

A command and control center as well as a large field camp that housed many ISIL terrorists were reportedly destroyed by the intense strikes. Notably, three infantry combat vehicles, 12 off-roaders with large-caliber machine guns, and many ISIS fighters were neutralized in the aerial operation.

This comes at a time when reports increasingly propose that the Syrian Army is massing to launch a huge offensive to capture the oil-ridden town of Sakhnah and lift the siege off the resilient city of Deir El-Zor.

don’t write nonsense.
civilians will be always killed in every war. but not 1.5 m.
a mini nuke can be as powerfull as 10 tons of tht, menas a truck fully loaded and THE SAME physical package can go to 20kT, means hiroshima size. THE SAME PHYSICAL PACKAGE..
Putin spoke about nukes last november. He has to deliver some of the nukes now.
