The coordinated actions of the Syrian Army and the Russian Aerospace Forces can deliver a lethal blow to terrorists in the war-torn country, Syria's deputy defense minister said.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Syria's army is capable of defeating terrorists with the help of the Russian Aerospace Forces remaining in the country, Syrian Deputy Defense Minister Mahmoud Shawa said Wednesday.

"Syrian forces are currently engaged in a ground war against the enemies of our country, in cooperation with national militias. We are, of course, capable of taking part in the war and winning together with our Russian friends," Shawa said at a security conference in Moscow.

Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with forces loyal to the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad fighting against numerous opposition and extremist groups.

Moscow started a military campaign against terrorists in Syria in Autumn last year at President Bashar Assad's request.
