MOSCOW, February 22. /TASS/. Reports saying the terrorist coalition Tahrir al-Sham harbor plans for creating a new "Islamic State" are worrisome, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.
"We find worrisome the reports the Organization for the Liberation of the Levant [ahrir al-Sham - TASS] harbors plans for declaring within a month the creation of another Islamic State in the south of Idlib Province and north of Hama Province, a second one after the caliphate in Raqqa," Zakharova said.
"Such a territorial entity that is going to be established under the cover of the teaching of Islam, although we all understand perfectly well that such attempts have no bearing on real Islam at all, in reality would become a stronghold for those in Syria who profess an ideology of terror and violence," Zakharova added.
