Six Tu-22M3 long-range supersonic bombers from Russian territory struck ISIS targets in the Syrian governorate of Deir ez-Zor, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Saturday.

The bombers hit militant base camps, weapon stockpiles, and armored vehicles, the report said.

Russian fighter jets scrambled from Latakia’s Hmeimim Air Base to providing air cover for the bombing sortie.
