Russian Air Force has identified and eliminated 32 pickup trucks mounted with high-caliber guns and more than 120 IS terrorists who attempted to flee from Raqqa to Palmyra, an Iranian news agency MEHR reports.
The column was located by drones which monitor possible terrorist routes 24/7. The terrorists intended to breakout from the encirclement and head towards Palmyra. Receiving the intelligence, Russian jets immediately targeted ISIS militants to prevent them from leaving Raqqa to the south.
All future terrorist attempts to move to Palmyra will likely be thwarted.
