On August 16, 2016, Tu-22M3 long-range bombers and Su-34 tactical bombers took off from the “Hamedan” airbase (the Islamic Republic of Iran) and carried out a concentrated airstrike on objects of the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groupings in the provinces of Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor and Idlib.

As a result, the strikes have eliminated 5 large ammunition depots with armament, munitions and fuel, training camps of militants near Serakab, Al-Ghab, Aleppo and Deir ez-Zor cities, 3 control centres of militants near the cities Jafra and Deir ez-Zor as well as a significant number of militants.

Ammunition depots, training camps and control centres destroyed by the bombing had been used for support of militant groupings near Aleppo.

Su-30SM and Su-35S, which had taken off from the Hmeymim airbase, covered the long-range bombers.

All Russian aircraft have returned to the airfield after accomplishing the combat task.
