Russian Aerospace Forces striking only ISIS positions - Damascus

Russian aircraft are striking exclusively ISIS positions, Syrian Ambassador said.

Russian aircraft are striking exclusively ISIS positions, Damascus has said.

"All air strikes are delivered only on ISIS positions," Syrian Ambassador to Moscow Riyad Haddad said at a press conference on Thursday.

"We have precise coordinates identifying locations of terrorist groups," he said.

The ambassador said the Syrian army was coordinating its operations with the Russian Air Force. Air strikes are also being delivered on the positions of Al-Qaeda, he said.

"The positions of Al-Qaeda are also the positions of ISIS. Strikes on these positions are only natural and logical, the reason is that strikes are also targeted against other terrorist groups supporting ISIS," Haddad said.
