Mission accomplished, Islamic State defeated in Syria — Russian military

Mission accomplished, Islamic State defeated in Syria — Russian military”

Syria is fully liberated from terrorists, all units of the Islamic State (IS) terror group (outlawed in Russia) have been destroyed, Chief of Russia's General Staff, General of the Army Valery Gerasimov, said at an annual briefing for foreign defense attaches on Wednesday. "The territory of Syria has been completely liberated from fighters of this terrorist organisation", he told reporters.

The combined forces of Vladimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad have completely wiped out the Islamic State in Syria, the defence ministry has said. "Thus, there are no territories controlled by ISIL in Syria today", Gerasimov concluded. The air strikes included 14 sorties of groups of long-range bombers from Russian Federation made in the past month, he said.

In addition, he said that "the final stage of the defeat of the terrorists was accompanied by the unprecedented deployment and intense combat use of Russia's air force", including 14 sorties of groups of long-range bombers that occurred in the past month.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the conflict, said Thursday that IS still holds about eight percent of Deir Ezzor province.

With the defeat of IS, the Russian military will now concentrate on helping the Syrians restore a peaceful life and ensure that all parties comply with the agreements on the cessation of hostilities.

Meanwhile, U.S. Pentagon spokesperson Army Colonel Rob Manning announced that roughly 2,000 U.S. troops are now operating in Syria, a number the agency had previously disputed.
