Syrian people, armed with the bravery of its army, steadfastness of its workers and the blood of martyrs have been able to foil the conspiracy and confront the global war being launched against them.

Independence relentless struggle, inexhaustible source of inspiration for defeating Takfiri terrorism

 As the Syrian people celebrate the 71st anniversary of the Independence Day, they are more determined to step up their struggle against takfiri terrorism and its supporters.

This year's celebrations co-incided with landslide victories realized by the heroes of the Syrian Arab army against al-Nosra and ISIS terrorists in different Syrian areas.

The National Independence Day has been an honorable stage in Syria’s modern history. As we celebrate the 71st anniversary of Independence Day, we remember with great pride the sacrifices of our fathers and forefathers who refused to bow or surrender.

The struggle of the Syrian people started immediately after the decision of the French army to enter Syria. Following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, the colonialist states represented by France and Britain, immediately divided the Arab homeland between them according to the notorious Sykes Picot Agreement as if it were its inheritance.  France took Syria under its sphere of influence and issued the ill-famed Guru Ultimatum before sending Guru himself to occupy Syria.
