MOSCOW, October 1. /TASS/. The airstrikes carried out by Russia’s Aerospace Forces against the positions of the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria are in line with the international law, the speaker of Russia’s lower house of parliament, Sergey Naryshkin, said on Thursday.
"Russia launched the military operation in the Syrian Arab Republic to fight against terrorist groups and units of the so-called Islamic State and other terrorist organizations on the territory in full compliance with the international law and in response to the request of Syria’s legitimate authorities," Naryshkin stressed.
Russia’s upper house on Wednesday unanimously gave the president approval to use the Russian Armed Forces abroad. Kremlin chief of staff Sergey Ivanov noted "it was solely the operation of the Russian Air Force" against Islamic State terrorist group in Syria at the request of President Bashar al-Assad.
Later on the same day, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces delivered several pinpoint strikes on the positions of the Islamic State, carrying out about 20 missions, Gen Konashenkov, the Russian Defense Ministry’s official spokesman said. Civilian infrastructure facilities and nearby areas remained unaffected, he said.
