Russian Aerospace Forces:
around 28,000 terrorists eliminate in Syria
The Security Council of the Russian Federation (SCRF) affirmed on Tuesday that the Russian Aerospace Forces helped in eliminating around 28,000 terrorists in Syria and that the Russian operation in Syria is conducted according to accurate military plan.
In a press statement on the sidelines of a high-level international security meeting held in Grozny city, Deputy Secretary of the SCRF Yevgeny Lukyanov said that the joint Russian-Syrian military operations have helped eliminate 28,000 out of an estimated 80,000 terrorists that make up the ranks of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists, which means around 35% of the members of the two terrorist organizations, while the US-led international coalition killed only 5,000 terrorists over the last two years.
He pointed out that the main goal that Russia was seeking to achieve in Syria is to launch a political dialogue, which is the only way to end the crisis, adding that Syrians should solve all issues themselves and Russia is helping them do that albeit on a limited scale.
Lukyanov said that some sides predicted that Syria will be a new Afghanistan, but that will never happen with Moscow, as there is talk of a precise and limited military plan.
On Monday, Head of the Russian center for coordinating and monitoring the cessation of hostilities in Syria, Lt. Gen. Sergei Kurylenko, stated that the Russian Aerospace Forces intend to continue launching strikes on the sites of Jabhat al-Nusra, which is trying to carry out new terrorist attacks.
