Russian air force in Syria has bombed over 20 off-road vehicles equipped with large-caliber weapons and grenade, as well as armored vehicles, including tanks, and heavy-load trucks carrying ammunition.

Over 200 militants were eliminated, the Russian Defense Ministry announced on Monday.

A large convoy of terrorists’ vehicles that headed to the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor was destroyed by bombers and military aviation from the Russian Aerospace Forces.

"The Russian military aviation eliminated another large convoy of militants from the Islamic State (a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia), as they were heading to Deir ez-Sor, where international terrorists are trying to re-group and set up their last stronghold in Syria," the Defense Ministry added Monday.

Throughout August, the militants had been trying to focus on the province of Deir ez-Zor, while the Russian air forces and Syrian government troops were ousting them from the south of Raqqa province and the west of Homs province, The Russian Defense Ministry added.

"The defeat of the Islamic State in the region of Deir ez-Zor will be a strategic defeat of the international terrorist group in Syria," the ministry added.
