Russian MoD: Daesh Controls Only 5% of Syria
Local Editor

The Russian Defense Minister spoke about the positive results of the Russian military operation in Syria.

"Today, Daesh [the Arabic acronym for ‘ISIS/ISIL' terrorist group] controls less than 5%. Before the start of the operation of the Russian Air and Space Forces, more than 70% of the territory of Syria was under Daesh control," Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said at a meeting of defense ministers of ASEAN member countries and dialogue partners.

He underlined that Moscow is focused on restoration of a peaceful life in the country.
"998 cities and settlements have been liberated, the liberated area is 503 thousand 223 square kilometers. Most of the militants were eliminated. The process of restoring a peaceful life in the country has begun. Since the beginning of the operation of the Russian Air Force, since 2015, 1.12 million people have returned to their homes. Only in 2017 - 660 thousand," Shoigu said.

According to him, as a result of the work of the Russian Center for the reconciliation of warring parties, 2,500 settlements across the country have joined the reconciliation process.

The minister mentioned the crucial role of oil sales reduction in the success of the military operation.

"Before 2015 Daesh earned around $3 billion a year from oil sales in Syria, up to $10 million a day in separate periods. Today Daesh financial support from the Syrian territory has almost ceased," Shoigu said.

"We are concerned over the terrorist threat increase in southeast Asia, primarily in the context of movements of foreign Daesh terrorists who are being squeezed out of Syria and Iraq," Shoigu said.

According to the minister, cash flows into the countries of the Asia-Pacific region to support local terrorist cells and to carry out terrorist attacks are being detected increasingly frequently.

"Today our task is to conclusively destroy the potential of international terrorism, primarily Daesh, with joint efforts of the international community," Shoigu added.
