Description

Russia used Iran's airbase on August 16 for the first time as a base from which to launch air strikes against Islamic State fighters. Long-range Russian Tupolev-22M3 bombers and Sukhoi-34 fighter bombers used Iran's Hamadan air base to strike a range of targets in Syria.It was the first time Russia has used the territory of another nation, apart from Syria itself, to launch such strikes since the Kremlin launched a bombing campaign to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in September last year.The Iranian deployment will boost Russia's image as a central player in the Middle East and allow the Russian air force to cut flight times and increase bombing payloads.Subscribe here: Follow us on @boomlive_inLike us on: facebook.com/boomnews
