At a November 16 meeting of the Security Council, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the military operation should not only continue but be intensified, Interfax reports.

“The military operation in Syria should not only continue but be intensified, so the criminals realize that punishment is imminent.

I expect the Defense Ministry and General Staff to submit their proposals,” said Putin.

According to Alexander Bortnikov, Head of the FSS, the crash involving a Russian airline in Egypt was a result of a terror attack.
