BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – Russia will continue its military operations against terrorists inside Syria, Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov stated on Monday.
“The fight against terrorist organizations in Syria goes on, and we should continue this fight,” the spokesman told journalists. In reply to the question about Iran’s missile strike on Syria, he noted:
“As for the illegitimate presence of foreign troops and foreign armed forces in Syria, Russia’s position on this has been quite clear,” he added.
Peskov’s comments came shortly after a Minister of Parliament released a report regarding the Russian military’s operations inside of Syria.
On Monday morning, Iran launched multiple missiles into eastern Syria, targeting the terrorists of the Islamic State (ISIS) that were involved in the September 22nd attack on a military parade in Ahvaz.
