MOSCOW: Russia has intensified air strikes against the Nusra Front militant group’s oil producing and smuggling sites, a senior military official told a news conference on Friday.

Sergei Rudskoy, head of the General Staff’s main operations command, also said that a further delay by the United States to differentiate between moderate Syrian opposition fighters and militant jihadists threatens the Syrian peace process.
