MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. Moscow expresses doubts concerning the veracity of information on the coalition successes in the fight against the Islamic State, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Moscow also doubts the effectiveness of the air strikes the international coalition has been carrying out against the Islamic State terrorist group, the spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

“From the point of view of military and political situation, a tendency on strengthening the Islamic State positions arouses concern, especially with regard to the activities of the US-led anti-terrorist coalition,” Alexander Lukashevich said.

“Many media raise the role and effect of the aviation slightly,” he said. “Allegedly, the IS lost over a thousand of militants on the Syrian territory as result of air strikes.”

“It’s hard to say how precise this statistics is. But evidently, the tendency in the fight against the IS cannot be overcome without coordination of actions with Damascus,” Lukashevich said.
