    Russia's Defense Ministry has asked the US and its coalition partners to reveal the sites of suspected Daesh terrorist targets in Syria.

    The Russian Defense Ministry again reminded the US-led coalition about the necessity of "showing cards" in fighting Daesh terrorists, the ministy's official representative Igor Konashenkov said on Wednesday.

    "From the very beginning, we have asked the Americans to organize an exchange of information on terrorist targets in Syria several times. Perhaps it is time for our colleagues in the so-called coalition to show their cards?" Konashenkov said.

    Over the past week, information has surfaced regarding the deployment of a new Russian air base in the Shairat village of Homs province.

    Earlier in the day, the Syrian General Staff provided information to Russia's Defense Ministry revealing Western coalition strikes on December 6 against Syrian troop positions in Deir ez-Zor, where the Syrian goverment is battling Daesh Forces.

    Syrian General Staff information shows strikes against Syrian troop positions in Deir ez-Zor on December 6 were carried out by the western coalition, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

    Moscow has conducted airstrikes against Daesh, also known as ISIL/the Islamic State, in Syria since September 30, acting at the request of the legitimate government of Bashar al-Assad. Russian warships stationed in the Caspian Sea have also launched successful cruise missile strikes against the terrorist group.
