According to the Russian Ministry of Defense Spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov, the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last pockets of resistance are located inside areas controlled by the U.S. military forces inside Syria.
As for the current situation in the Syrian Arab Republic, we recommend the Pentagon chief to examine the map showing the situation in this country. All remaining ISIS pockets of resistance in Syria are located only in areas controlled by the USA.
The Russian general was responding to U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ claims that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad was creating problems in his country by inviting both Iran and Russia to enter Syria.
All this time Washington focused on financing and direct arms supplies to fictional ‘Syrian opposition’ totaling hundreds of millions of dollars. The US military invaded 25% of Syria and occupies 80% of the Syrian oil fields.
However, the vast majority of US-supplied arms and ammunition fell into the hands of al-Qaeda Nusra Front [terrorist group, banned in Russia] and ISIS, who also sought, to overthrow the legitimate Syrian government.
