Two days of the Russian Air Force operation in Syria have resulted in bombing nearly three hundred terrorist facilities in eight Syrian provinces, the Defense Ministry said Friday.

On November 11-12 Russian warplanes delivered airstrikes in the Syrian provinces of Aleppo, Damascus, Deir ez-Zor, Hama, Homs, Idlib, Latakia and Daraa, Major General Igor Konashenkov, spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, said in a daily briefing.

"The airstrikes resulted in the elimination of 34 command observation and operational posts of the armed gangs, 16 munitions and fuel storage depots, two workshops producing munitions and homemade explosive devices, three field and training camps, 50 strongholds with military hardware and fire units, 184 fortified localities and defense positions, Konashenkov reported."

ISIS’s stronghold and a field ammunition depot have been eliminated in one sortie by a Sukhoi Su-24M bomber near Thaniet al-Rajma pike in Homs province.

“A direct hit onto terrorists’ engineer installations completely destroyed them along with three mortar detachments and a field ammunition depot,” Konashenkov said.

An air reconnaissance in Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor near the town of Mayadin exposed a convoy of tank trucks transporting crude oil towards the Iraqi border, in the direction of the oil processing facilities controlled by ISIS.

A notice was immediately passed to a Sukhoi Su-34 bomber patrolling the area, which delivered an airstrike on the convoy.

“Objective control data confirmed complete elimination of the tank train,” the military spokesman said; RT reported.
