Russian Aerospace Forces managed to practically stop deliveries of smuggled oil from Syria to Turkey, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad told Sputnik.

 

“I can say that Russian Aerospace Forces managed to stop deliveries of smuggled oil from Syria to Turkey almost entirely. All the tanks where oil was stored have been destroyed as well,” Haddad said in an interview.

 

However, several oil wells used by the Daesh for illegal sales to Turkey among others still remain in Syria, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad told Sputnik.

 

“Up to this day there are still several small oil wells used by the Daesh for illegal sales to Turkey among others,” Haddad said.

 

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier that there was plenty of evidence pointing out at Turkey setting up a large network to supply Daesh terrorists operating in Syria.

 

Daesh (also known as ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State) is a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia and numerous others countries.
