Shoigu confirmed the Syrian army’s capture of the last stronghold of militants in the country


Deir ez-Zor and Meiadin are currently working on demining. Today, they started demining and cleansing Abu Kemal - this is the last major stronghold and center, where a fairly large group of terrorists was concentrated. Some of them have been destroyed, some of them crossed the Euphrates and are moving to the north. I hope they meet them with dignity
- said Shoigu.

Convey our congratulations to your Syrian colleagues, and I congratulate you on the successful completion of the operation that you have been conducting for the last four days. VKS showed all their skills, well, the most important thing in difficult weather conditions performed all the tasks that were put before them
- stressed the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The Russian military had previously called the city of Abu Kemal the last ISIL bridgehead * in eastern Syria.

Last week, supporting the ground operation of the Syrian army in the area of ​​Abu Kemal, a series of attacks on militants caused long-range bombers Tu-22М3, which took off from the territory of Russia. In addition, Russian submarines attacked the terrorists from the water area of ​​the Mediterranean at the terrorists with Caliber cruise missiles.

        Not. The main blow was from Iraq. In the gray desert passed only small forces of the government army. There is the first violin from the Iraqi Hezov and Shiite detachments.

          It is clear that the main ones from Iraq, the Tigers from the north-west, have not yet reached, from the T2 the Syrian army is also not enough than it helped. The main blow was the Syrian-Iraqi border by the forces of the Shiite militia and the Iraqi army.

      Barmaleev is still a bunch. For example, fighting Turkestans from the Turkestan Caliphate wassat . Incidentally, they are generally in the de-escalation zone, they cannot be bombed. Therefore, they hold parades.

    Let me congratulate you now on the beginning of the restoration of Syria. Money will go to that now. But how differently with friends. We were given a lot to learn how to. But this is for a long time. So tighter belts. Salt is getting more expensive. But these are trifles.

    And why does Shoigu fit in for the Syrian army to report and confirm something there? It would be better to think about your country and army, or have we already solved all the problems? Yes, I, without getting up from my chair, will call hundreds of the three most urgent and unresolved.
