DAMASCUS, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- Syrian and Russian forces have killed more than 630 "terrorists" in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib after a drone attack on a military academy in central Syria killed dozens last month.

The joint Syrian-Russian operations included more than 230 airstrikes by the Russian air force and more than 900 artillery missions by the joint forces on the "terrorist" sites, said Vadim Collet, head of the Russian Coordination Center in Damascus and Central Region.

The operations killed more than 630 "terrorists," including 34 leaders and 15 foreign experts, and injured 450 others, he said.
