Russian news agency TASS, reports that ISIS militants attacked the refugee camp in an area controlled by U.S.-backed forces on October 13, kidnapping around 130 families before taking them to the city of Hajin.
Speaking at the Valdai discussion forum in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, Putin said ISIS leaders had made demands, but did not specify what they were.
‘They have issued ultimatums, specific demands and warned that if these ultimatums are not met they will execute 10 people every day.
‘The day before yesterday they executed 10 people,’ Putin said, adding: ‘This is just horrible, it is a catastrophe.’
The Russian President told the forum that ISIS is expanding its control in territory on the left bank of the River Euphrates, currently controlled by U.S. and U.S.-backed forces.
He accused the U.S. and its allies of failing to combat ISIS once again expanding in Syria.
