Russian Tu-22M3 long-range bombers destroy ISIS command centers in Syria

Strategic Tu-22M3 bombers have occasionally flown from Russia to deliver airstrikes on terrorists in Syria, starting July 12. The Russian military declared the end of the active phase of the counter-terrorist operation in Syria in March, with a ceasefire coming into force.
Although Russia has largely withdrawn the main part of its task force from Syria, it has maintained a significant military presence, in particular at the port of Tartus and Khmeimim air base.
