Terrorists “Islamic State” are leaving en masse positions near Damascus after Russian air strikes in Syria. This was reported by the official representative of the Russian Defence Ministry, Major-General Igor Konashenkov.
“The use of Russian combat aircraft in the province of Damascus has led to a fundamental change in the operational situation in the region. Terrorist groups are experiencing an acute shortage of ammunition, and as a result, are leaving their positions in large numbers”, – RIA quotes Konashenkov.
As noted by Konashenkov, reconnaissance from last night showed them leaving fixed positions and leaving in the direction of the settlement Marge Sultan, in several large groups of about hundreds of fighters each.
