Following the Paris attack and confirmation that the downing of Metrojet flight 9268 was in fact a terrorist attack, Russia has doubled its air power in Syria. In addition, Russia has started non-stop bombing runs with a fleet of strategical bombers, and launched over 100 cruise missiles strikes at terrorist targets--all since Wednesday.

Some information suggest ISIS and Al-Qaeda's losses in the last few days numbers in the thousands.Due to this blitz, the Syrian coalition forces on the ground have been able to make large gains virtually across the entire front.

Turkish members of Al-Nusra (Al-Qaeda in Syria) have been overheard making a distress call to Turkey for assistance, which was answers by Turkey registering a complaint that Russia is being too aggressive against the terrorist groups. Russia has yet to reply (and probably won't), and there's nothing Turkey can do to save their terrorist pets at any rate. The French aircraft carrier is yet to arrive, but expect the terrorist body count to only increase when it does.

Russian jets have carried out 394 sorties from the Hmeymim airbase in Syria in the last three days, base commander Alexey Maksimtsev told Russian President Vladimir Putin during a Defense Ministry briefing.

The airstrikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces have helped the Syrian Army advance in all directions, with the most progress made outside Aleppo and in the mountainous area of Latakia, Major General Alexei Maksimtsev, Commander of the Russia Air Force Unit at the Hmeymim air base, reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"Airstrikes targeted 731 militant command points in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib, and outside Palmyra. In addition, the air force unit was augmented with eight Su-34 bombers and a squadron of Su-27SM3 jet fighters which were involved in destroying targets in the provinces of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor," Maksimtsev said.

He underscored that surveillance of all types has been conducted in Syria to guarantee hitting all militant targets.

"Advanced unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are used for surveillance, target indication, and monitoring the airstrikes," he underscored.

The general pointed out that during the massive airstrikes, gas and oil producing facilities, command points, ammo depots, training camps and missile-manufacturing factories were destroyed.

"That has contributed to damaging the command network and economic structure of terrorist groups," he added.

"Russian strike aircraft continue to launch massive airstrikes. There are no casualties among the personnel, as well as no losses of equipment."
