MOSCOW, November 5 /TASS/. The terrorist command system in Syria has been damaged but they (terrorists) are still preserving their potential, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.

"With effective support by Russian war planes, the Syrian army has passed over to more active operations, seriously damaging the system of command among various terrorist groups. A direct contact, which the Russian Defense Ministry has had with representatives of the armed groups that are opposed to terrorism, is also very important," Zakharova said.

At the same time, Zakharova noted that the terrorist units were preserving a considerable potential and could recruit fresh forces into their ranks. "They are launching a in some sections and are changing their tactics," the Russian diplomat added.
