BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The battle against the remaining terrorists in Syria and Iraq is still ongoing despite past claims by world leaders.

Speaking at press conference on Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the fight against terrorists is still ongoing because the latter is receiving support from outside entities.

“Terrorism in both Syria and Iraq is not completely defeated because these groups supplied from outside,” he told reporters.

This remark from Lavrov comes just hours after the Russian FSB said they have information about a possible merger between Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh).

In Syria, the Al-Qaeda linked groups and Daesh have been fighting for several years, especially inside the Idlib Governorate.

Last year, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Daesh clashed for several weeks inside the southern countryside of Idlib; this resulted in the subsequent defeat of the latter.

Daesh is now relying on their sleeper cells in Idlib to wreck havoc on the rebel factions.

What did Russia expect from Israel-USA-NATO ? To sit and congratulate Russia for the Syria-Russia-Hezbolah-Iran victories in Syria ? Please, that is obvious that is happening and will continue happen.

Unfortunately, some criminals are posing as heroes.
Don’t you understand that it’s a pan-Islamist plan where Turquey, Qatar and Iran are together.

Iran for a change supports counter terrorism in Syria. But I agree on Turkey and co.

If any of Israel-USA-NATO had wanted to skin Syria, Syria wouldn’t exist any more. Stop believing Muslim Brotherhood or Hezbollocks propaganda.

Israel and the US supported various “vetted” Jihadi fractions that skinned Syria alive but did not want to go to open war over Syria.

Do not pretend these two acted like innocent choir boys.

p.s. NATO is not created for aggression but is a defence pact. NATO countries kept out when Erdogan wanted to construct a defence case and involve the NATO forces.

@Gustav, NATO did not participate. Erdogan tried to drag the NATO in but the NATO majority declined to participate.

Obviously some interested parties still supply Jihadi rebellion in the North West of Syria. And the only place the arms supplies can come from geographically is Turkey. As easy as that.

Israel could only supply the rebels in the South. And likely did.
But that area is mostly pacified.

The US can supply via Jordan or Iraq but that also has no border to Idllib.
