The Russian Aerospace Force's aircraft have destroyed a terrorist training base in Syria, where foreign instructors have trained suicide bombers, spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov told reporters on Saturday.
"In the suburbs of Salma [Latakia province] a Sukhoi Su-24M bomber hit a separately located building which housed a terrorist training base. According to the reconnaissance data, in the building foreign instructors have trained ISIL gunmen to wage a subversive war in the districts freed by the Syrian army, as well as suicide bombers," Konashenkov said.
He noted that along with the training in mining and blasting activity terrorists were trained to legalize themselves among civilians and refugees.
"The building also housed a workshop producing homemade explosive devices. The direct hit of the aviation bomb has fully destroyed the building," the general said.
