Minoborony Sez Pockets of IS Resistance in Syria Only in US-Controlled Areas

________________________

On Saturday, Minoborony spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said that pockets controlled by the Islamic State in Syria remain only in US-controlled areas:

As for the current situation in Syria, we recommend that the Pentagon chief study the country’s military map.

Konashenkov was commenting on the US Defence Secretary’s statement in which he said that President Assad, supported by Iran and Russia, led the Syrian people to a catastrophe, while the mostly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces was the only organisation that succeeded in defeating terrorists in Syria. Konashenkov pointed up:

All pockets of ISIL resistance remain only in US-controlled areas. Peaceful life is returning to Syrian provinces controlled by the legitimate authorities. Demining activities are underway, businesses are open, as well as markets, schools, and kindergartens. These areas receive humanitarian aid and food, the USA didn’t pay for a single package. However, the UN and human rights defenders say that the Syrian people face a true catastrophe in the al-Tanf area occupied by US troops and in the city of Raqqa controlled by the USA illegally. Amnesty International’s latest report reflected all this.
