Syria uses Russian precision bombs on IS

Syria has started using Russian-made precision bombs in its battle against IS militants, government sources told foreign media.
Though the exact model of the bomb was not disclosed, the same sources indicated that the Russian weapons had arrived earlier with the Russian transporter planes which landed in Syria 10 days ago.
Analysts say the precision bomb used by Syrian government forces at Palmyra last week would belong to the KAB glide bomb family.
American analysts said the shipment of Russian weapons also included artillery and tanks.
