The armed Syrian opposition got their own to deal with the terrorists trapped inside areas of de-escalation. The Minister of defence of Russia Sergey Shoigu on Sunday, August 13, said in an interview with TV channel "Russia 24", the video is available on the website Вести.Ru.
The Minister recalled that one of the main problems of the operation in Syria there was an office of the opposition from terrorists. Zone of de-escalation, in fact, there is such a distinction. "When we said here is a zone of de-escalation, there is moderate and not so moderate opposition, but the opposition. There are no bandits. But if there are bandits there, it is the opposition that is inside this zone of de-escalation, have to deal with them," said he.
A key point on the map of Syria Shoigu called the city of Deir ez-Zor, blocked militants grouping "Islamic state" (IG banned in Russia) in 2014. He believes that the release of this item will be the turning point in the fight against terrorists.
