Russia: 85% of Syrian Areas Held by Terrorists Restored
Local Editor

Russia's military said Tuesday that Syrian troops have retaken about 85 percent of the territory once controlled by terrorists.

The government's most recent advances have recovered swaths of territory in eastern Syria from Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group.

In the same context, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited Syrian President Bashar al-Assad Tuesday and held talks focusing on plans to recapture Deir Ezzor city and to "strengthen efforts to combat terrorism in all Syrian territory until its utter annihilation," al-Assad's office said.

The Syrian army last week reached Deir Ezzor city, the provincial capital on the Euphrates River, breaking an almost three year-long Daesh siege of the province with its important nearby air base.

"To date, 85 percent of Syria's territory has been cleared of the militants of illegal armed groups," the RIA news cited Alexander Lapin, chief of staff of the Russian military contingent in Syria, as saying.

Lapin said Daesh fighters are still in control of around 27,000 square km of Syria's territory.

"Syrian troops are finalizing the defeat of [Daesh] blocking the northern and southern districts of Deir Ezzor," Lapin said. He said the assault was being led by Gen. Suheil al-Hassan, a Syrian officer who has risen to prominence in the war.
