A reported "263 terrorist targets" have been destroyed by Russian airstrikes in Syria over the past two days, Russian Defence Ministry Major-General Igor Konashenkov confirmed on Thursday, during a press conference from Moscow.

Konashenkov said that "a few days ago a consignment of anti-tank missile systems was delivered to one of the warehouses" in Idlib Province, according to "Information Centre in Baghdad." The facility was hit by "a pair of Su-25s, and the warehouse and all its contents was destroyed."

Konashenkov also said that the "Russian Air Force strike only at the targets of the terrorist infrastructure, which are at a considerable distance from the historical monuments." He underlined that in Tadmor "the destroyed fortified area of ISIS terrorists was located more than 30 kilometres away from ancient Palmyra."

Russian aircraft have in total conducted more than 1,000 sorties since the campaign began on September 30 after an official request of aid from the Syrian Government, destroying several hundred militant targets, dozens of control centres, warehouses and other militant facilities, while the Syrian Arab Army has made gains on the ground.
