In reports from the Kremlin, the ISIS COMMAND structure near Raqqah is NO MORE!
Su-34s hit their target with concrete-piercing BETAB-500s setting off a series of explosions and fires that totally wiped it out!
Surgical airstrikes by Russian fighter jets have knocked out a number of Islamic State installations in Syria, including the battle headquarters of a jihadist group near Raqqa, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
“Over the past 24 hours, Sukhoi Su-34 and Su-24M fighter jets have performed 20 sorties and hit nine Islamic State installations,” Igor Konashenkov, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman, reported.
Konashenkov added that yesterday evening Russian aircraft went on six sorties, inflicting strikes on three terrorist installations.
“A bunker-busting BETAB-500 air bomb dropped from a Sukhoi Su-34 bomber near Raqqa has eliminated the command post of one of the terror groups, together with an underground storage facility for explosives and munitions,” the spokesman said.
Commenting on the video filmed by a Russian UAV monitoring the assault near Raqqa, Konashenkov noted, “a powerful explosion inside the bunker indicates it was also used for storing a large quantity of munitions.
“As you can see, a direct hit on the installation resulted in the detonation of explosives and multiple fires. It was completely demolished,” the spokesman said.

They don’t spell it out in so many words….you have to learn to read the intent of the message….they want to give the best customer service possible to their customers….what better way than to make more branches available to them…..building trust in the banking system again….building trust in the currency…..look back up at the CBI article….all are factors of what they are doing…..this is what Iraq is doing…..it is called PROGRESS.
PROGRESS……is there any doubt where my emphasis is today…..where it has been for weeks and months….and where it will continue to focus and be upon…..
PROGRESS…..yes it is there….yes it sometimes can be slow….but of late it has taken on the persona of lightening speed….if you blink you may miss a key part of it…..thus the reason we continue to bring good intel, information, and analysis to you…..we seek the same as you…..SUCCESS.

NO ONE WOULD INVEST IN BONDS THAT IS NOT BACKED WITH INTERNATIONALLY ACCEPTED CURRENCY.
