Syria is completely liberated from the militants of the terrorist organization ISIS (banned in Russia). The remnants of the militants were defeated in Deir ez Zor by General Hassan Suhel. This was stated by Army General Valery Gerasimov, the chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces.
“All the gang-formations in the territory of Syria have been destroyed, and the territory itself has been liberated.”
“Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu reported this an hour ago to the supreme commander-in-chief, President Vladimir Putin,” Gerasimov said, and again emphasized that “In Syria to date territory under ISIS control does not exist. “
The other day, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the liberation of almost the entire territory of Syria from the terrorists, including places of traditional Christian residence.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian government plans to reduce the military contingent in Syria.
The Russian Defense Ministry said that the coalition led by the United States instead of confronting ISIS contributed to the occupation by terrorists of the territory of Syria.
