MOSCOW - The Russian Defence Ministry said on Thursday it had carried out a new round of air strikes in Syria overnight, hitting four Islamic State targets while strictly avoiding populated areas.

It said Sukhoi-24M and Sukhoi-25 aircraft had flown eight sorties, hitting an ammunition depot near Idlib as well as a three-story Islamic State command center near Hama.

It said a pinpoint strike had destroyed a facility located in the north of Homs aimed at rigging cars with explosives for suicide attacks.
