The Russian military has destroyed numerous oil facilities and tankers controlled by ISIS in Syria, sharply cutting its income, as it conducted cruise missile launches in three provinces, Russia's defense minister said Friday. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to President Vladimir Putin Friday that Russian warplanes destroyed 15 oil refining and storage facilities in Syria and 525 trucks carrying oil during this week's bombing blitz. Russian state TV Friday showed Russian air force ground crew writing "For Ours!" and "For Paris!" on bombs being attached to Russian warplanes.According to Shoigu, Russian warplanes have flown 522 sorties and destroyed over 800 targets over the last four days. Shoigu said the strikes this week inflicted significant casualties on ISIS, including more than 600 militants killed in just one strike in the province of Deir al-Zor.
