Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday pledged no let-up in Moscow's bombing campaign against Islamic State jihadists, the Al-Nusra Front and other "terrorist groups" in Syria after a ceasefire enters into force.

"I want to underline again that Islamic State, Al-Nusra and other terrorist groups that have been designated as such by the United Nations Security Council are not included (in the ceasefire deal)," Putin was quoted as saying by Interfax news agency, adding that "the decisive fight against them will, without doubt, be continued."
