Russia says its strikes killed hundreds of IS in east Syria


(Worthy News) - Russia's military says its airstrikes in eastern Syria this week killed more than 300 Islamic State militants.

Russia has been a major backer of Syria's President Bashar Assad whose government troops have been advancing in the eastern province of Deir el-Zour against IS under the cover of Russian airstrikes.

Meanwhile, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces are also marching against the Islamic State group, backed by the U.S.-led coalition. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]

  1. Russia doesn't even need the U.S. presence in Syria anymore. Russia was just being nice and allowed the U.S. to save some face after the 3 years of Obama's success in creating and arming his mercenary force ISIS. We should thank Mr. Putin for his generosity.
