Moscow, SANA- Russian Defense Ministry has said that the US occupation troops, which are deployed to Syrian territory, are training terrorists in al-Tanf area, Homs eastern countryside and supporting them in order to carry out terrorist attacks against the Syrian state.
“The terrorist groups, that have been trained in al-Tanf area by Daesh terrorist organization, and whom the US considers as one of the tools of achieving its foreign policy priorities in Syria, are attacking the civilians and the Syrian civil facilities, including oil facilities,” the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry added “Despite the difficulty of carrying out operations in the desert, units of the Syrian Arab Army, with support of Russian reconnaissance planes, discovered hiding places of terrorists and eliminated them with high-precision strikes.”
Since September 2015, at the request of the Syrian Arab Republic, Russian Air Forces have been participating in supporting efforts of the Syrian Arab Army in its war against terrorist organizations.
The ministry also released a footage on its website showing several joint operations between the Syrian army and Russian forces against the US backed-terrorist organizations in the Syrian al-Badia region, including Daesh (ISIS) terrorist organization.
