The US-led anti-ISIS coalition has not decreased its presence or the intensity of its actions in Iraq and is continuing to combat terrorism in the region, the coalition's spokesman told on Thursday.

Axar.az reports citing Sputnik.

"Maj. Gen. Konashenkov's statement is inaccurate, representing a propaganda campaign to discredit the US and our successful coalition anti-ISIS fight against in Iraq and Syria," a coalition spokesperson told on Thursday.

The spokesperson also noted the main goal for the US forces in Iraq and Syria is the anti-terrorist fight. Moreover, they will continue their operation against the ISIS as long the terror group remains a conventional or insurgent threat in the region.

"Our number one goal remains to defeat ISIS in designated areas of Iraq and Syria and set conditions for follow-on operations to increase regional stability," the spokesperson added.

Earlier in the week, Konashenkov said the beginning of the liberation operation of the Syrian the province of Deir ez-Zor coincided with the coalition’s sharp decline in the intensity of attacks on ISIS in Iraq.
Earlier in September, the Russian Defense Ministry published a batch of aerial pictures showing that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the US troops that support them are present in Syria's areas held by ISIS.
