Footage from the Russian Ministry of Defense released on Wednesday, shows the moment Russian airstrikes struck a suspected meeting of militant commanders operating in and around the province of Idlib. According to the Defense Ministry, KAB-500 precision-guided and corrected air bombs were used during the operation. Since launching its first airstrikes in Syria on September 30 after an official request for aid made by the Syrian government, Russia has flown dozens of combat missions and conducted more than 100 airstrikes, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad arrived in Moscow earlier on Wednesday to hold talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin about the ongoing operations and current situation in the Middle Eastern nation.
