(Before It's News)

DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 18, 2016, 5:57 PM (IDT)

If Islamic State fighters are allowed to leave Mosul and go to Syria, Russia would take the appropriate military */and political decisions, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov warned Tuesday.  “As far as I know, the city is not fully encircled, “ he said… This corridor poses a risk that Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] fighters could flee from Mosul and go to Syria. We will be evaluating the situation and take decisions of both political and military nature if this happens,” Lavrov added. “I hope the US-led coalition, which is actively engaged in the operation to take Mosul, will take it into account.”

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
