Russian fighters have been supporting the Syrian government since 2015

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced that it had killed “up to 200 militants” in a series of air strikes on a “terrorist” base in the northeast of the Syrian city of Palmyra.

According to the ministry, they destroyed two bunkers and more than twenty pickup trucks supported by heavy-caliber machine guns, as well as quantities of ammunition and equipment for the manufacture of explosive devices.

It said that the militants had set up a base in northeastern Palmyra, which was used to launch attacks in several areas and train militants.

The ministry statement did not specify the date of the strikes, nor the group that the militants would follow.
