The Continuity of October Victory

The sweeping victories recently realized by the Syrian Arab Army in Deir Ezzor and other Syrian areas are considered a continuity of the October victory achieved by the Syrian and Egyptian armies on October 6, 1973 which constitutes a luminous landmark and an important turning point in the modern history of the Arab nation.The current field victories being achieved by the Syrian Arab Army obviously constitute an extension of its victories in the October Liberation War against the Zionist enemy.October victory will bring another victory to Syria against terrorism and the sinister American Zionist project which aims to create sectarian sedition in the region and undermine Syria’s resistant and pan-Arab role.

There are little differences between the current aggression and the circumstances during the October War. Syria nowadays is facing an enemy armed with western and Israeli- made weapons and an ugly extremist ideology aiming at destroying the Syrian state and punishing its people under false titles like ''revolution'' or the so-called Arab spring which brings nothing to the region but woes and destruction.

Syrian people are currently celebrating the 44th  anniversary of October Liberation War which is a shining example of valor, heroism and glory. October victory has constituted an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Syrian people and army in confrontation of the conspiracies and plots hatched against Syria and the Arab nation over the past four decades.

The October Liberation War anniversary coincides with the Syrian Army and its allies decisive battle against the foreign-backed terrorism targeting Syria and the region as a whole. The anniversary comes as the Syrian Arab Army is further determined to perform the sublime duty of defending the homeland and eradicating terrorism to foil conspiracies hatched against Syria by the West and its dirty tools.Hearing the reports of the achievements of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies in eliminating the mercenaries of the Wahhabis and Zionists, the Syrians recall the victories of the Syrian Armed Forces 44 years ago in the October Liberation War. The total faith in the ability of the Syrian Army to achieve victory and destroy terrorism and Wahhabi-Zionist calls is enhanced by the unity of the Syrians, who stand firm in the face of challenges and economic sanctions imposed on them in an attempt to undermine their commitment to their homeland.

October victory  anniversary is an opportunity for motivation towards development and struggle and an opportunity for unifying all efforts at the local, Arab, regional and international arenas to uproot terrorism and resolve the crisis in Syria peacefully through conducting a comprehensive dialogue that encompasses all spectra of Syrian society without any form of foreign intervention. On this occasion, it is very important to unite efforts to face the conspiracy and extinguish seditions hatched against the homeland.The sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army and the martyrs who offered their blood to defend the soil of the homeland and the dignity of its people will be a source of pride and strength for all Syrians to press ahead with their struggle and believe in the inevitability of victory against terrorism and its supporters.Inspired by the sublime values and great meanings of October victory, Syrian people and army are determined to press ahead with their battle to uproot terrorism and restore security and stability to Syria.  The high awareness of the Syrian people and their strong national unity will enable them to uproot terrorism, overcome the crisis and emerge out of the crisis stronger and more steadfast in confrontation of the Zionist American agenda which aims to enable Israel  invade the Arab homeland politically and economically.

October victory has inaugurated the dawn of a new era and created a promising stage in the life of the Arab Nation. This sweeping victory had great consequences at the local and international levels. It  was chronicled in the Arab history as a bright spot and a shining example of valor and glory.The current battle which Syria is waging is different in form but not in substance from October war, as the foreign enemy arming terrorists and sending mercenaries into Syria has but one goal: toppling Syria, as the US and Israel sought to dominate it by weakening it and subverting its role, a goal that wasn’t achieved and will never be achieved.
