Russian drone films ISIS militants hiding weapons, munitions near Syrian mosques (VIDEO)

Russian drone films ISIS militants hiding weapons, munitions near Syrian mosques (VIDEO)
The Russian Ministry of Defense has released a video showing Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants moving their military hardware to residential areas, including one near a mosque, in an apparent attempt to save it from airstrikes.

The video released on Tuesday was taken from a drone in Syria.

“Having realized the high efficiency of our reconnaissance assets in detecting masked equipment storage bases and the real threat of their destruction, terrorists are making efforts to move their weapons in residential areas. Vehicles are usually deployed near mosques as the terrorists know that the Russian Air Force will never target them,” the Ministry of Defense commented on the issued video.
