Syrian ambassador: “Russian airstrikes Destroy 40% of ‘DAESH’s infrastructure in a week”

(Sputnik News) ~ Around 40 percent of Islamic State infrastructure in Syria has been destroyed since Russia began its military operation in the country, Syria’s Ambassador to Russia Riad Haddad told Sputnik on Wednesday.

“According to our data, about 40 percent [was destroyed]. In addition, a lot of terrorists have been killed. Now, they are retreating toward the Turkish border, as this country has traditionally provided them with protection,” Haddad said.


Russian General Staff: “60 terrorist targets destroyed in the Syrian provinces of Aleppo, Raqqa, Hama, Idleb, Lattakia, 300 terrorists killed by the Russian Air Force within the past 24 hours, Daesh might use mustard gas”.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation confirmed that 60 targets belonging to terrorist organizations have been destroyed in the Syrian provinces of Aleppo, Raqqa, Hama, Idleb, and Lattakia and at least 300 terrorists were killed in airstrikes carried out by the Russian Air Force within the past 24 hours.

In a statement on Friday, Deputy Chief of the Russian General Staff, Lt. Gen. Igor Makushev said that Russian Sukhoi Su-34 Sukhoi Su-25SM jets carried out 67 sorties, resulting in the destruction of 60 targets belonging to ISIS in Syria.

Makushev said the airstrikes’ targets included an ammo depot and a base for terrorists in Aleppo, resulting in the death of 100 terrorists and the complete destruction of the depot, explaining that Russian jets used Russian KAB-500S precision guided bombs to destroy the headquarters of the “Liwa al-Haqq” terrorist group, with reconnaissance confirming that two ISIS leaders and around 200 terrorists were killed in the process.

He went on to add that 6 command and communication centers, 6 ammo and fuel depots, 17 terrorist-training camps, 3 underground facilities, and 16 fortified sites along with their weapons, 11 reserve sites, 17 vehicles, and 2 rocket systems were destroyed by the Russian airstrikes.

He also said that Russian jets targeted two bases for terrorists, one in al-Mighiriye in Lattakia, and the other in Tertyah in Idleb, asserting that the Russian Air Force is intensifying airstrikes and inflicting heavy losses on terrorists, which forced them to change tactics and avoid focusing their forces in one area, and instead are hiding in occupied areas.

Russian General Staff: “ISIS might use mustard gas against Syrian army”

On a relevant note, a source at the Russian General Staff warned that ISIS might use mustard gas against the Syrian Army, explaining that intercepted communications between ISIS terrorists following Russian airstrikes on their sites mentioned an urgent transportation of special munitions to the confrontation line with the Syrian government’s forces.

The communications also mentioned “surprises” and talked about hand grenades that contain toxic chemicals chemical, according to the source.

The source added that gunmen talked about the need to stop the progress of the government’s forces and establish a “chemical pollution barrier” for personnel and vehicles, asserting that this information is very grave because reports dating to around a month ago indicate that terrorists have reserves of mustard gas.

The source warned that if ISIS employs chemical weapons, the anti-Syria propaganda will try to blame the Syrian Army in the same way it did in the past when terrorists employed chemical weapons in Syria.
