Israeli Ambassador in Moscow, Gary Koren, has congratulated Russia on the defeat of the Islamic State terrorist grouping in Syria.

“We congratulate Russia on its victory over the Islamic State [in Syria],” Koren said.

“It became possible thanks to Russian presence,” he continued.

Simultaneously, the ambassador voiced concern over the buildup of Iran’s military presence in the region in spite of defeat of the terrorists. “Now they [the Iranians] are building up their military presence, which is they don’t need already, and their economic presence, too.”

The Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Gen Valery Gerasimov told an annual briefing for military attaches on Wednesday Syria had been fully cleared of terrorists and all the units of the IS had been destroyed.

He also said Russia was ready to give assistance to the U.S. in destroying remainders of the grouping in Iraq.

  1. " “It became possible thanks to Russian presence,” he continued."

    This statement is true and contradicts the statement from a US spokesman this week that 'the Russian Military had not been relevant in the demise of ISIS in Syria and it was the US Coalitions devastating attacks that had been '.

    Israel it seems is playing games with the US here and so soon after Trump said the US Embassy would relocate to Jerusalem as well :rofl:

  2. Israel did literally nothing against ISIS. Russia should cut ties with Israel bunch of shamless thugs puttin on a happy face.
