Sergey Rudskoy about the interaction with the so-called moderate Syrian opposition:
The successes of the ground operation of the Syrian armed forces contribute to the actions of the so-called moderate opposition against ISIL. Currently, more than 150-like formations operate in Syria. The most patriotic of them are already fighting in cooperation with the Syrian government forces. Today there are more than 5 thousand people. Constant contact is established and maintained with them. Opposition formations provide the command of the Russian aviation group with the coordinates of terrorist objects to defeat.
In the province of Rakka, with the support of moderate oppositionists from the Ganim and Democratic Forces units, it was possible to destroy the ISIL and 150 units of equipment near the 11 unit in the last 24 hours.
Attacks on terrorists and moderate opposition units in the area of Palmyra and El-Karatien.
