Russians in Syria are preparing the final battle against the Islamic State jihadists

Russia will continue its fight against the Islamic State jihadists. It was announced that ISIS capita Raqqa is Russia’s primary target.

The announcement was made Russia’s envoy to the UN Office in Geneva Aleksey Borodavkin.

“This is what the Syrian Army is doing with support from the Russian Air Force. As a result of these actions, Palmyra has been recaptured and now they are planning to launch an operation towards Deir ez-Zor and Raqqa. Fighting is taking place against groups like Al-Nusra Front in Aleppo and a few other places,” Borodavkin said, as cited by RIA.

Deir ee-Zor is located in the north east of Syria and has been under IS control for months. It is an important location for the terrorist organization, due to the number of oil fields in its vicinity.
