Hosting Russian jets, part of cooperation on Syria

Iran’s defense minister says the hosting of Russian military airplanes in an airbase west of the country is part of mutual cooperation to target terrorists operating in Syria.

Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan says Russian airstrikes against terror groups are being carried out at the request of the Syrian government. Dehqan added that Tehran and Moscow share common goals in Syria and that the two countries will continue their military cooperation until their goals are attained. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, long range bombers and strike bombers took off from the Hamadan Nojeh Airfield for the first time on Tuesday to conduct air raids in northern Syria.
