BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The US-led international coalition is destroying critically important infrastructure facilities in Syria, complicating the country’s postwar rebuilding, Head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Department Colonel-General Sergey Rudskoy said on Tuesday according to TASS.
“We continue observing the international coalition’s actions on the territory of Iraq and Syria. An impression is being created that the international coalition has set the goal of fully destroying critically important infrastructure facilities on the territory of Syria and maximally complicating the country’s postwar reconstruction,” the general said.
“The biggest concern is caused by the coalition’s air strikes on the Euphrates Dam west of Raqqa. The latest such air strike was delivered on March 26,” he continued.
He then went onto highlight the situation in Iraq’s northern city of Mosul.
“Nearly every day, the coalition’s aviation delivers strikes on the quarters of Mosul where tens of thousands of civilians stay besides the Islamic State’s militants. According to assessments of international humanitarian organizations, more than 250,000 people have left the city,” he said.
