    Russia Versus ISIL in Syria (618)

    Live broadcasting from the Hmeymim Air Base near Latakia on Wednesday, November 4, as Russian fighter jets conduct sorties against the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and other militant targets in Syria.

    Russia has been conducting precision airstrikes against terrorist positions in Syria at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad since September 30.

    According to Russian General Staff, militants have begun to retreat due to Russian aviation airstrikes, having lost much of their weaponry and equipment on the contact line with Syrian troops. Russian intelligence drones have increased their sorties to track events.
