BEIRUT, July 21. /TASS/. After Russia joined the fight against terrorism in Syria the balance of forces in the country began to shift in favor of the legitimate authorities, Syrian President Bashar Assad said on Thursday in an interview to the Cuban agency Prensa Latina.
"Since the Russians decided to intervene in supporting legally the Syrian Army in fighting the terrorists in Syria, mainly (Jabhat) al-Nusra and ISIS (Islamic State) and some other affiliated groups, the scales have been tipped against those terrorists, and the Syrian Army has made many advancements in different areas in Syria," Assad said. "And we are still moving forward, and the Syrian Army is determined to destroy and to defeat those terrorists," he added.
