BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:02 A.M.) – The Russian General Staff, during a brief about operations in Syria, said that in the past week alone, the Russian air force has dealt devstating blows to ISIS in the eastern Aleppo countryside.

The Russian air force has dealt over 452 airstrikes against the terrorist group, resulting in more than 600 fighters being killed, the Russian General Staff claimed.

In addition to the 600 dead, 16 armored vehicles, 41 technicals and 30 vehicles have been neutralized.

This was a significant blow to ISIS and allowed the Syrian Army to advance and reach Lake Assad, leading to the capture of the Al-Khafsah water stations, and also capturing 15km down the coast of the water body.

600 dead in 452 airstrikes => 1.32 is not a lot.
It’s not cost effective.
I feel napalm will become trendy again in the future…

Have in addition to count much more wounded militants not capable to fight… if ca 600 are dead throughout those strikes, then maybe some x3 or x4 x5 more is severly wounded. Anyway there are lots more militants to silence. Think SAA takes out huge numbers of them…. And quite a few syrian moderate “rebels” are giving up the fight and goes through reconcilation programs….
by the way, napalm is out, now they are using white phosphorus in wich the Israelis tested on Palestinians over a decade ago, A google pic search will show You horrific examples……
