Russia intensifies strikes on Nusra Front oil sites -military official

MOSCOW, May 27 (Reuters) - 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.
