In each mission six Tu-22M3 russian strategic bombers took off from an airfield in Russia and delivered airstrikes on Islamic State targets on the western bank of the Euphrates near the settlement of Abbas, in northeast Syria near the locality of Alishar and in the province of Deir ez-Zor.
According to the russian ministry of the defence, the warplanes hits all designated targets, strongholds, hardware, command posts and manpower. In each mission unmanned aerial vehicles recorded the results of the bombing.
