Several terrorist leaders have been killed in Russian airstrikes in Syria over the past week, the Defense Ministry said. In Latakia province, a dugout with the leader of a large terror group named Abu Abdu and several other field commanders has been destroyed, General-Major Igor Konashenkov, a Defense Ministry spokesman, told a media briefing on Friday. “Also during the week, several [terrorist] leaders were eliminated near the village of el-Latamna in Hama province,” he added. Illegal oil trade by the terrorists was also targeted by the Russian Air Force, with Konashenkov speaking of “12 oil pump stations, eight oil fields and refineries, and over 170 oil tanker trucks” being destroyed over the past seven days.
