Russian servicemen and military facilities in Syria have been attacked by militants several times, causing a number of deaths. "According to the information mentioned during the ceremony, the bodies of two other servicemen were sent to other districts of the Zabaikalsky Territory", the source said.

Earlier on Sunday the Russian Defence Ministry had put out a statement saying that four russian soldiers had been killed when several rebel groups attacked a Syrian army artillery battery.

During the nighttime battle, 43 terrorists were killed and six vehicles equipped with large-caliber machine guns were destroyed.

"There were 35 pro-government forces killed, including at least nine Russians".

The Observatory said five days of fighting in Deir el-Zour killed 76 troops and pro-government gunmen as well as 25 IS fighters.

Two of them, who were serving as "military advisors" to the Syrian army, were killed on the spot, while two more died shortly afterwards while being treated at a Russian military hospital, the statement said.

Four Russian soldiers have been killed by militants in Syria's eastern Deir Ezzor province, the defence ministry said on Sunday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the jihadists had targeted a group of Syrian and allied Russian fighters near the town of Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province on Wednesday.

The Russian military has been present in Syria supporting Bashar al-Assad at least since 2015 and about 3,000 soldiers are believed to be on the ground. In February, up to 200 Russian contractors were believed to have been killed by USA airstrikes after pro-regime forces launched an assault on US-backed Kurdish forces in Deir Ezzor province. The incident happened after Daesh terrorists attacked an artillery battery belonging to the Syrian army.
