Yesterday, the Russian Airforce killed a whopping 250 ISIS militants during an air raid on an Islamic State gathering north of Palmyra, the Russian Ministry of Defense said.

Russians and the SAA need to try and destroy 250 or more every day. That would bring the war to a close in less than a year.
