Airstrikes Russians have been launching on positions held by moderate Syrian opposition have been making ISIS stronger, says a statement published on the website of the Chief Intelligence Department of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.
“The airstrikes Russian jets have been launching mostly on positions held by moderate Syrian opposition have been pretty ineffective and led to bolstering of ISIS in Syria,” says the statement.
According to the Chief Intelligence Department, ISIS militants have captured the towns of Mahin and Huvarin located in the province of Homs.
“The capture of the towns may lead to a highway linking Homs and Damask being cut off. The highway’s strategic importance lies in the fact that it is actively being used by the Assad regime to move in troops and supplies,” says the statement.
