Russia touts essential role in Syria's advance against IS

Russia touts essential role in Syria's advance against ISAs the Islamic State group seems to crumble across Syria, a top Russian commander points to a pulverised tank once used by the jihadists as proof of his country’s essential role in their demise. In recent months, Syrian troops have rolled IS back in the country’s northern province of Aleppo, Hama and Homs in the centre, and most recently, Deir Ezzor in the east. Jihadists would pack anti-tank mines and TNT into the vehicles, retrofit them with protective armour, then detonate them at Syrian army positions.
