Syrian President Bashar al-Assad stated at the same time that the scenario of the liberation of the south of Syria has not yet been determined: either a peaceful solution or a military one.

“The return of the helicopters indicates that the combat missions that were put before these crews have already been accomplished: the destruction of terrorists, their facilities and so on. Or it may be due to routine work that can not be done in the field. This is a workflow, there is nothing secret. The Ministry of Defense demonstrates full openness of actions in Syria – unprecedented openness. While our “partners” do not report at all how many combat equipment they have there, what tasks are being carried out. In this respect, Russia shows a remarkable example of how to combat terrorism. Not everyone is alone and not so when one uses terrorists as weapons, and others destroy them, because they understand that this is a threat to the whole world, “said Alexander Zhilin.
