Combat cam footage shows Russian planes hitting ISIS targets
Russia's Ministry of Defense has released a video showing a military jet striking Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) targets in Syria. Moscow says that at least eight targets were hit Wednesday, with a coordination center in the mountains having been totally destroyed.
A total of 20 combat flights were carried out by Russian forces on Wednesday, the same day that the country's upper chamber of parliament approved the deployment of troops to Syria at the request of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
