According to one of the Free Syrian Army leaders, FSA is willing to share "precise intelligence" with Moscow to help coordinate airstrikes against Daesh (the Islamic State) militants.

CAIRO (Sputnik) — The Free Syrian Army is ready to provide Russia with data indicating positions of Daesh terrorists in Syria, head of FSA intelligence, Gen. Hossam Awak, told Sputnik on Monday.

"We have precise intelligence, documents, maps, and we can share them with the Russians so that their strikes on Daesh are more effective," Awak said.

He believes that the information provided by Damascus is not accurate enough, which makes Russia's airstikes not as efficient as they could be.

"We really want to cooperate with the Russians in fight against Daesh on condition that their airstrikes hit solely Daesh targets," the general stressed.

Russia's Defense Ministry has repeatedly assured that all airstrikes on terrorist targets in Syria are carried out after thorough data checks and with high precision.
