“This area was a stronghold for Daesh terrorists during the past six years,” ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told a press conference. “They arrived in the area after they were beaten in different places across Syria.” Government forces, he added, now control 65 per cent of the area, even as operations continue to push Daesh out completely.
