At least 12 Islamic State fanatics have been killed in Russia's first air strikes on the extremist faction's main Syrian bastion.

Russia's defence ministry said it struck an ISIS training camp near the village of Maadan Jadid, 45 miles east of Raqqa city and 'a camouflaged command post at Kasrat Faraj' southwest of the city.

It came as ISIS militants posted a tweet warning 'Death to Putin: We are coming #soon' with a picture of Moscow's St Basil's Cathedral in flames, according to the SITE intelligence group.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived for talks with his French counterpart Francois Hollande in Paris as questions mount over who Moscow was targeting in Syria. (Daily Mail - UK)
