Militants of the Islamic State terrorist group (IG, banned in the Russian Federation) currently control no more than 5% of the territory of Syria, said Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.


According to him, in two years of operations of the Russian Aerospace Force, 948 training camps, 666 ammunition factories, about 1,5 thousand units of military equipment of militants were eliminated in Syria.

Shoigu: IG * controls less than 5% of Syria


Today, the IG controls less than 5%, before the start of the operation of the Aerospace Forces (Russia), the IG controlled more than 70% of the territory of Syria
- Shoigu said at the fourth meeting of the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and dialogue partners (“SMIA plus”).

998 cities and towns freed up, 503 vacated area thousands of 223 square kilometers. Eliminated most of the militants. The process of restoring a peaceful life in the country has begun. From the beginning of the operation of the Russian Aerospace Force, from 2015, 1 million 126 thousand people have returned to their homes. Only in 2017 year - 660 thousand
- said S.Shoigu.

Also, the Minister of Defense noted that in two years of participation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in military operations in Syria, the financial support of the Islamic State was actually stopped at the expense of the oil industry.

Before 2015, about $ 3 billion a year was earned by ISIS from oil sales in Syria, in some periods up to $ 10 million per day. Today, ISIL’s financial support from Syria has almost ceased
- said S.Shoigu

Also, more than 200 oil and gas production sites, 184 oil refineries, 126 fuel pumping stations and about four thousand fuel tankers were destroyed.
- said S.Shoigu.

    Well done! Pretty quickly and efficiently managed.
    Now we need to consolidate the result, clean out all the remaining barmalei and their instructors, and gain a foothold in the region for their strategic defense goals.

      Our specialists from the VKS and MTR work very productively ... but I think the situation may worsen when the Kurds begin to self-will and the ISF from IRAQ penetrate the territory of SYRIA.
      So far, everything is unstable and uncertain ... what

        I think that soon everything will be controlled by the SAR troops with the support of our VKS, and in the future, it will be possible to organize your own "outpost". For example, to build a early warning radar is a very good place.

    Now to keep this whole success. Without the Russian HQ and specialists on the ground, the defense of the SAR will quickly "float" to the suburbs of Damascus.

    Wonderful question: How much does Assad control? Even if the suburbs of Damascus cannot be controlled in any way. It is a pity that religious and clan groups were torn to pieces. It controls only the territory where the Alawites are strong. And where our soldiers are. We are not talking about other areas and full control. Unfortunately

      This is another question. Idlib, Guta and areas under the control of the SDF, he definitely does not control.

        I think and will not control. Judging by the studies that the Center for Strategic Studies does to them. Begin-Sadat (the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies), victory will not come soon. It is proposed to support the cutthroats, so that they would not rush to Europe. But in Syria.

      Remind me, what was the purpose of entering Syria? Destroy ISIS or help Assad?

        And this and that. Do you think that the legitimate Syrian Authority has finally won? It's too early to talk about it.

        The purpose of the campaign in Syria was to help the Assad regime, as it refused to build a gas pipeline from Qatar to Europe across its territory. After that, all the "barmalei" fell upon Assad, with the support of the Saudis, Qatari, Europeans and Americans. And we saved him. And not even his but a wide pocket of Mr. Miller and Gazprom, so that their dreams come true even further. And fairy tales about the fight against international terrorism are for suckers like you.

            There was another one in 2011 about the absence of Russian interests in Syria. Times change, change interests.
            “We have no special interests there (in Syria): there are no military bases, large projects or multi-billion investments that need to be protected”

    998 cities and towns were liberated, the freed area was 503 thousand 223 square kilometers.
    Ummm, I admit to Murid I read it, but Vicki claims that the territory of Syria occupies only 185 km²! fellow That is, Syria, almost three times, is completely liberated! And this is our defense minister, just some kind of horror. How after that, seriously take Konoshenkov, with his thousands of terrorists destroyed, in one blow of the terrorists and there tens of thousands of targets hit ?!

        The usual manipulation of numbers. Someone without Vicki remembers the Syria square by heart? It will be good if the area of ​​the native country is remembered ... and here is distant Syria.
        However, it is possible and even necessary to carry nonsense. They will not check, and if they do, well, and that ... No one will apologize.
        What a pity for them, basurman, write more!

        in general, as Murid writes, maybe a mistake, or on purpose. But half a million square kilometers sounds? It sounds.
        Shoigu simply freed Spain-505 990 km² laughing

        who came under fire is the one and the terrorist. And strategic sheds. We have the same picture ... This is when the United States started like this, and now we have.
        for the average viewer will come down ... and there are more.

    You are more careful about the minister.
    Did you hear him literally?
    Did he say that?
    Although I looked at an article in TASS there is the same nonsense.
    There is in the Russian newspaper but with reference to TASS and the liberated territory in kilometers did not lead. :)

    So they need to leave these 5%, let them concentrate all their remnants of former power there, pull up additional forces, eat porridge, and when they all are going to smear them with all the remaining 5%.
