In the course of the last two days, the aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have been making strikes against uncovered infrastructural facilities of the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groupings.
The aircraft performed 131 combat sorties from the Hmeymim airbase engaging 237 terrorist objects in the Hama, Lattakia, Homs, Damascus, Aleppo and Raqqah provinces.
In the Tadmor district (Homs province) a Su-25 attack aircraft made a strike on an ISIS fortified area. Direct hits resulted in destruction of fortifications, underground shelters as well as AA artillery positions of the terrorists with two ZSU-23 systems. Objective monitoring data confirms their complete elimination.
Near Harasta al-Katara (Damascus province), an ISIS ammunition depot was destroyed. A hit of a guided bomb on a bunker with artillery munitions completely destroyed the object with all its contents.
In the suburbs of Aleppo, a Su-34 bomber made a strike against a terrorist camp used for training of militants arrived from other countries. As a result of hits of air bombs, the ammunition depot as well as the training facilities were eliminated.
Near Salma (Lattakia province), a command and communication centre of a large Jabhat al-Nusra illegal armed group was destroyed at one of the tactically important high points. The centre had been used for coordination of militants’ groups. The ability of transmitters provided opportunity to suppress radio communications of the Syrian Armed Forces.
The command center, which was hidden in mountain-woody area, as well as all its contests were completely destroyed by a bomb strike.
Near Kafr Nabudah settlement (Hama province), a Su-25 attack aircraft performed a strike against militants’ fortified area with two armored vehicles and two off-road automobile vehicles equipped with ZU-23 AA systems.
Direct hit of an air bomb caused destruction of an ammunition depot. As a result of detonation, armored and off-road vehicles burnt down.

It is to be reminded that a week ago the leading western media referring to the Syrian-American Medical Society, which is registered in the USA, accused the Russian Ministry of Defence of supposed bombing of hospitals by the Russian aircraft in the inhabited areas of Alays, al-Hader, Khan Tuman, Al Zerba, Sarmin, Latamna.
This was done without any factual basis. As a pseudo-evidence, a video showing the demolition of a hospital in Sarmin settlement (Idlib province) was demonstrated.
Certain western media referring to anonymous sources claimed that in the course of the strikes of the Russian aircraft, 12 people were supposedly killed and about 30 were injured in that medical institution.
We have checked this information. It turns out that there is a hospital only in Sarmin. In Alays, Al-Hader, Khan Tuman, Al Zerba, and Latamna there are no hospitals and medical personnel.
These are photos of the hospital being constructed in Sarmin in 2014. Please, pay attention to the dome-shaped building in the upper left corner of the photo.
It is circled in red at the photo.
These are aerophotos of Sarmin town taken by the Russian aviation on October 31, 2015.
They demonstrate the hospital, located near dome-construction. As you can see, the building, where the hospital is situated, is absolutely undamaged. Moreover, the street suffered no damage.
