Russia’s Protection Ministry says that Russian warplanes have taken off from a base in Iran to focus on Islamic State fighters in Syria.
Tuesday’s announcement marks a serious improvement within the efforts towards the Sunni militant group. Russia has by no means used the territory of one other nation within the Middle East — besides Syria — for its operations inside Syria earlier than this.
The ministry’s assertion says Su-34 and Tu-22M3 bombers took off earlier within the day to focus on Islamic State and the Nusra Entrance militants in Aleppo, in addition to in Deir el-Zor and Idlib, destroying 5 main ammunition depots, coaching camps and three command posts.
Russia and Iran have been increasing their ties prior to now months after a lot of the sanctions towards Iran have been lifted.
