Moscow Slams US Actions in Syria

World A- A A+

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov slammed on Friday as "destructive, inconsistent" US actions in Syria, especially near the country's oil fields, Eurasi Dairy reports citing Sputnik news.

According to the senior official, the Russian military does not possess any reliable information about the results of the United States' operation aimed at eliminating Daesh* leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

"Our military working on the ground does not have reliable information about the fact of conducting and the results of the mentioned operation for eliminating ex-Daesh field commander Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi," Syromolotov said, stressing that the Russian Defence Ministry had already commented on the matter.

US President Donald Trump said on October 27 that Baghdadi had been killed in a US operation in Syria's Idlib.

Commenting on the claim, the Russian Defence Ministry's spokesman, Igor Konashenkov, said that Russia did not have reliable information that the US military had carried out an operation to eliminate Baghdadi. 


Daesh later confirmed the death of al-Baghdadi and named Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Qurashi as their new leader.
