Russian Defense Ministry: economic infrastructure of IS in Syria is completely destroyed — Rambler News Service


The Syrian government army with assistance of Russian Air Forces could destroy completely economic infrastructure of the IS terrorist group (it is forbidden in the Russian Federation) in Syria, the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry major general Igor Konashenkov has said. "Russian Air Forces have destroyed economic infrastructure of ISIL in Syria and any attempts of renewal by terrorists of production and illegal realization of hydrocarbons in Syria are stopped. ISIL in Syria — has no sources of financing of purchases of arms and ammunition and also recruitment of mercenaries" — he has told. Now the Syrian army with assistance of Russian Air Forces conducts operation on release of the city of Meyadin in the province Deir ez-Zor which is considered one of the largest strongholds of IS. However in the city daily there arrive fresh fighters from Iraq of different nationalities. "Attempts of transfer in Meyadin of fresh reinforcements of ISIL among which there are a lot of foreign mercenaries who have intruded on the territory of Syria from Iraq are daily fixed. Fighters come by armored machinery, pickups with large-caliber arms and well armed" — the representative of the Ministry of Defence has noted. Konashenkov has emphasized that the USA and the coalition headed by them sharply have reduced intensity of the blows struck to terrorists of IS in Iraq group from the beginning of operation of Russia and Syria on release of the province Deir ez-Zor it is possible in order that those could move to Syria and to be the destroyed direct shots of Russian Air Forces, the general has assumed. In that case, he says, "it is a dexterous opportunity to exempt Iraq from terrorists of IS, having driven them into Syria under direct shots of Russian Air Forces". However reduction of number of airstrikes on terrorists in Iraq can be also explained with the fact that the USA thus tries to complicate as much as possible a problem of Russia and Syria of release of the territory from fighters. "Actions of the Pentagon and the coalition demand explanations: whether such change of priorities at the USA and the coalition is aspiration as much as possible to complicate operation of the Syrian army with assistance of Russian Air Forces on release of the Syrian territory to the east from the Euphrates River?" — Konashenkov has told.
