The airbase is heavily secured and is constantly on full alert due to the fact that ISIL terrorist positions are located only 40 kilometers from the facility, according to the exclusive report by RT.

The airfield is very busy with combat jets and transport aircraft taking off and landing non-stop.

Russian forces do not rely only on Syrian troops on the locations of ISIL fighters.

A spokesperson of the Russian Defense Ministry told RT how the Russian strike force is finding and identifying targets to attacks.

"Data from air force attacks was analyzed, and verification from multiple sources clearly shows that the Russian airstrikes were conducted on objects of terrorist infrastructure belonging to ISIL," Colonel Igor Klimov explained.

"Air attacks on civilian infrastructure where civilians could be was not in the planning and were not hit," he added.

That could mean sending surveillance drones to search for ISIL facilities or tapping into terrorist communications, according to RT.
