Putin sends 4,000 troops to Syria as he steps up bid to Wipe Out the evil Islamic State

The number of Russian military forces in Syria has reportedly swelled to 4,000 as Vladimir Putin continues his bid to destroy the Islamic State. The figure has doubled since Moscow began airstrikes against the notorious terror group at the end of September, according to US officials. They also claimed the number of bases used by Mr Putin’s men in the war-torn nation has grown. Hundreds of ISIS jihadis are thought to have already been wiped out – along with the group’s arms supplies. The Russian foreign ministry refused to comment on the size of Mr Putin’s contingent yesterday. But there are no Russian troops in combat roles in Syria, according to a spokesman for the Kremlin.
