Speaking at an annual briefing for foreign defense attaches in Moscow, Gerasimov said: "All ISIS units in Syria have been destroyed, and the territory has been liberated."

He stated that there was “no territories controlled by ISIS in Syria today”, following the liberation of last in Deir ez-Zour.

Gerasimov also noted that Russia was ready to hold dialogue and join the U.S.-led operation against ISIS in Iraq.

Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in the fighting and more than 10 million displaced, according to the UN.
