The Russian Defense Ministry publishes videos depicting the exploits of Russian military personnel in Syria.

Seeking to make the ongoing Russian airborne campaign against Daesh forces in Syria as transparent as possible, Russia’s Defense Ministry regularly posts videos of its operations to its official Youtube channel.

Here you can see how a Russian Su-24M attack aircraft takes off from the Hmeymim airbase in Latakia and proceeds to drop bombs on terrorist assets in the country.

Here, a tank belonging to Daesh militants attempts to flee from the incoming airstrike to no avail.

This Daesh terrorist strongpoint in the Idlib province stood no chance against some well-placed airborne munition.

However, not all of the aircraft deployed to Syria are used to rain death upon Daesh terrorists. Here, a cargo plane airdrops vital supplies to the civilian population of the Deir ez Zor province.

Russia launched its airborne campaign against Daesh in Syria on September 30, 2015 at the behest of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Since then, Russian warplanes have carried out over 5,600 sorties against the terrorists, wiping out hundreds of Daesh assets within the country.
