Footage shows technicians service and inspect Russian ground attack aircrafts and inspected precision guided munitions attached to them at an air base in Syria's Latakia, a day after Moscow said it would step up air strikes against ISIS targets across Syria.

Activity at the air base is on full speed a day after Moscow said it would step up air strikes against ISIS targets across Syria.

Moscow said on Sunday its planes flew 20 sorties in Syria and struck 10 ISIS targets in the previous 24 hours, including a training camp and a suicide-belt factory.

Russia's Defence Ministry said the strikes, conducted by SU-34, SU-24M and SU-25 planes, had hit targets in the Idlib and Raqqa provinces.

The strikes, which it called pinpoint, had also destroyed three ammunition stores and four ISIS command centres, the ministry said.

The Syrian president on Sunday said the success of a military campaign by Russia, Syria and its allies was vital to save the Middle East from destruction.
