Russian strategic bombers hit ISIS positions with cruise missiles, smart bombs (VIDEO)


Russia’s Defense Ministry has released new videos of retribution attacks on Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) with strategic bombers launching smart bombs and cruise missiles.

Strategic aviation was scrambled shortly after confirmation that the Russian passenger plane that crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Desert on October 31 was downed by a terrorist bomb.

The footage was apparently recorded on the morning of November 19 and collected as technicians prepare the Russian long-range bombers to fulfill their missions.

The Tu-160 ‘Blackjack’ long-range bombers are based in Engels, near the city of Saratov in southern Russia, while the Tu-22M3 ‘Backfires’ and Tu-95 ‘Bears’ are stationed in Mozdok in the North Caucasus.
