The Russian Defense Ministry has relected claims of the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq that ISIS members captured 2 Russian soldiers near Deir Ezzor city.

“All servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces staying in the Syrian Arab Republic are safe and in a good condition and are performing the designated tasks. There were no reports of incidents connected with capture or losses among servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces in the Deir ez-Zor Governorate and other Syrian areas,” the Russian media quotes a statement of Russia’s Hmeymim air base representative.

Earlier on Thursday, ISIS launched a large scale attack aganist government forces at the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor highway and seized Ash Sholah village. Amaq also claimed that 2 Russian soldiers were captured and another one was killed during the attack.

    It can’t be denied that the US head-chopping, heart-eating rapers had inflicted a few casualties this week but is the timing to catch the weekend news cycle, to delay the moment when the Washington Barbarians can no longer deny that they’re L.O.S.E.R.S. ?

    Again playing clean my beloved Russia in the midst of so much deceit American hypocrisy, lies and traps.
    Even if it were not the case, instead of denying the capture of his soldiers, why not use it as a pretext to unleash hell on all the enemies of humanity within Syria?
