  • Russia to apply Syrian law for ISIS return


    Moscow plans to apply Syrian legal procedures while addressing former Daesh/ISIS terror group fighters’ return to their countries of origins, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said Thursday. 

    Maria Zakharova characterized the issue as "one of the most difficult" on the agenda for Syrian settlement, during a wide-ranging news conference in Moscow.

    "It is necessary to qualify their detention and arrest, identify them, and then see what legal procedures should be applied in this case," she said.

    Zakharova stressed the issue is of particular importance as Daesh militants, defeated in Syria, can move to Iraq and rebuild the organization there, as protests in the country create favorable conditions for their activities, which they already carry out in a number of Iraqi regions.
