In the 2nd month of the 7th year of Russia’s intervention in Syria, SOHR activists documented several civilian deaths by Russian airstrikes, as eight civilians, including two women and three children were killed in airstrikes on the “de-escalation zone”.

 

During the 74th month of Russia’s military operations in Syria, SOHR activists documented over 650 airstrikes executed by Russian fighter jets on the “de-escalation zone” and ISIS positions in the Syrian desert, which left 15 ISIS members dead, while over 23 other ISIS members were injured.

SOHR sources have reported that Russia used the “Thermite-type explosives” in their airstrikes, a substance composed of aluminium powder and iron oxide which causes burns as it continues to ignite for about 180 seconds; some of the bombs used by Russian jets on the Syrian territory were loaded with this substance.

 

It has been discovered that they are “RBK-500 ZAB 2.5 SM” cluster incendiary bombs each weighed about 500 kg (about 1100 pounds) and they were dropped by military aircraft. They carried anti-individuals and anti-vehicles small sized bombs of the type (AO 2.5 RTM), loaded with 50 to 110 small-sized bombs stuffed with “Thermite”, which outpour out of it when they explode; the range of this anti-individuals and anti-vehicles bombs reaches 20 to 30 meters.
