​BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:05 P.M.) – Over 35,000 militants have been killed in Syria since the Russian military began their aerial campaign in late September 2015, the Russian Ministry Defense stated on Wednesday morning.
In addition to the 35,000 dead militants, the Russian Ministry of Defense claimed that 204 jihadist commanders have been killed during this large-scale military campaign.
While Al-Masdar News is unable to verify these numbers, the Russian Ministry of Defense has remained consistent in their statistical assessment of this almost six year long Syrian conflict.
The Russian Ministry of Defense also accused the U.S. military of rarely targeting the Islamic State in Syria, despite claiming they are fighting this international terrorist group inside the country.
