Russian military road service specialists have built a bridge across the Euphrates River a few kilometers from Deir ez-Zor in northeastern Syria to transport military hardware and personnel to the eastern bank, Vladimir Burovtsev, the chief of the road service at the Russian Defense Ministry, said Tuesday.

"We used unmanned aerial vehicles. During the installation work, explosive substances and grenades were falling on us from above. Nevertheless, we had no losses — no wounded, no victims. Everything was done on time," Burovtsev told reporters, Sputnik News reports. 

Burovtsev also noted that the bridge will also be used to deliver humanitarian aid to liberated villages and evacuate wounded people.
