"All Russian planes returned to the Hmeimim aerodrome after performing combat missions. Also, I want to emphasize that Russian drones over Syria continue to monitor the situation," Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

"Also the Russian Aerospace Force has destroyed a terrorist camp where foreign instructors had trained suicide bombers in the Latakia province, he added."

"Near Salma [the Latakia province] Su-24M bomber hit a separate building, which housed a base for training terrorists. According to intelligence data, foreign instructors trained ISIL militants there to conduct diversionary war in areas liberated by the Syrian army, as well as trained suicide-bombers."

All reconstructed ISIL positions are quickly detected and destroyed, Konashenkov said.
