Syria '100% Free of Islamic State' - Russia's Defense Ministry

  • Russia claims IS completely destroyed in Syria

Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi said Thursday that forces have routed IS east of the Euphrates River and re-established control over Syria's border with Iraq. "Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu had informed President Putin about that", Gerasimov said. "The territory of Syria has been completely liberated from fighters of this terrorist organisation", he told reporters. ISIL is an alternative abbreviation for the militant group.

According to Rudskoy, the use of Russian warplanes, including strategic bombers, in the final stage of the Syrian liberation was "unprecedented".

But the British-based war monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Thursday that IS still held around 8 percent of the eastern province of Deir Ezzor.

The UN's Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura said at a press conference in Geneva that winning territory back from the Islamic State did not stamp out the jihadists' influence or preclude them from re-appearing in the future in a different form.

Egeland spoke to reporters in Geneva on Thursday, where a delegation of the Syrian opposition is awaiting the government to resume United Nations -brokered talks.

Syria's delegation has called the opposition's insistence on Assad's removal "provocative" and "irresponsible".

"But it is a big and prolonged task", he said.

Russia's military mission in Syria's civil war in 2015 began at the official request of Damascus, and turned the tide of the conflict against rebel groups fighting to oust Moscow's ally, the government of Syria led by President Bashar al-Assad.

On Wednesday, Syrian forces supported by Russian Federation air power had swept through the remaining Islamic State territory in the Deir Ezzor region, seizing Abu Kamal and other cities on the west bank of the Euphrates near the Iraq border, Mr Rudskoi said.

The Syrian troops are now demining the settlements previously occupied by IS terrorists.

Putin also said it was important to establish an inclusive and truly representative Congress of Syrian Peoples, a proposed peace conference that Russian Federation has offered to host, which would lead to the preparation of a new constitution and then presidential and parliamentary elections.
