Syria quickly Russia reduces military deployment

Russia reduces its military deployment in Syria.

The Chief of the General staff Valeri Gerasimov said Thursday that the reduction likely will be "significantly". The withdrawal of Russian troops would be able to start before the end of the year.

The Ministry of defense in Moscow also reported Thursday that Russian long-range bombers goals of Islamic State in the Syrian province Deir al-Zor have bombarded. The terrorist organisation has since been expelled from all major cities in Syria and Iraq.
