MOSCOW(Sputnik) — The Nusra Front and Daesh fighters receive air support from Israel and the US-led coalition in Syria, Riyad Haddad, the Syrian Ambassador to Russia, told Sputnik.
"Before the US offensive on Syrian army positions in Deir ez-Zor [coincided with] the advancement of the Nusra Front towards Syrian army positions near the village of Hader and other villages which it wasn't able to control before. This twas preceded by an Israeli air cover. As Daesh [Islamic State] advancement was preceded by an air cover from the coalition planes, thus the Nusra Front and Daesh don't complain about the lack of possession of air force because Israel and US coalition planes are playing this role." Haddad said.
The Nusra Front and Daesh are banned in Russia.
