Deir Ezzor, Syria – Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said on Monday that the Syrian Army’s offensive along the Euphrates River valley will remove the last remnants of ISIS from the country.
“What has to be done now is to complete the offensive in the southeast of Syria along the Euphrates River. Now active operations are underway there. Terrorists are still putting up resistance but their fate is predetermined,” he said in an interview with Gazeta web-portal.
