Welcome back

Damascus International Fair, the Syrian economy’s window to the world, is brought back to life again after several years of forced absence due to the takfiri terrorist war inflicted upon our country. The famous and well-reputed Fair has defied all the extremely harsh coercive economic measures imposed unilaterally on Syria to be revived and held, surpassing all the repercussions of the war and succeeding to attract many Arab and foreign companies to join its activities. Holding this edition is a proof of the return of security and stability to our country due to the victories made by the Syrian Arab Army and the resilience of the Syrian economic figures despite of all what they have been exposed to due to the terrorist war.

Counter terrorism

Despite the fact that the UN Security Council has adopted several resolutions to combat Takfiri terrorism, the world is still suffering from this devastating phenomenon.

The reason is that the US and its Western allies have politicized these resolutions to achieve the objectives of their colonialist project in the Middle East region, which aims, among other things, to end the axis of resistance and enable Israel to invade the Arab region politically, economically and culturally.

The main responsibility for the failure of the international community in fighting terrorism is due to certain UNSC member states’ lack of commitment to implementing the global counter-terrorism strategy, their breaches of relevant Security Council resolutions, and the laxness in holding these terrorism-sponsoring states responsible.

Mosul victory

The great victory achieved against ISIS in Mosul is considered a great incentive for both Syria and Iraq to press ahead in  eliminating the ISIS and other terrorist groups completely.The Syrian people and army are going ahead alongside the Iraqi people and army, and PMU to eradicate what remains of ISIS, because the mobilization of the joint efforts of the two countries is the main factor to guarantee that ISIS or any other form of terrorism will not return to these two countries or any other part of the region.

 Mosul victory is a victory for all those who believe that eradicating takfiri terrorism is  the first step to restore security and stability to the Arab region.

The will of the political solution

The Syrian dialogue in Geneva, which is concerned with finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria can’t reach positive results if it does not start from discussing needs and desires of the Syrians.

To reach these results requires political will from the parties of the dialogue and the regional and international forces involved in the crisis. Without this willing, the Geneva dialogues will remain in vain.

A crime against humanity

Over the past fifty years, successive Israeli governments have been working to Judaize the city of Jerusalem and its holy sites. The current closure of al-Aqsa Mosque is part of the old Zionist Judaization plan. Palestinians continue holding demonstrations outside the al-Aqsa Mosque compound to voice their outrage at Israel’s latest move to impose new restrictive measures at the holy site. After coming under fire from the Muslim world, Israel reopened the compound, but with metal detectors and surveillance cameras at entrances. Since then, however, Palestinians have been refusing to enter the al-Aqsa compound through the metal detectors and hundreds of worshipers have been holding prayers outside the site with clashes that resulted in the death of several Palestinians and the wounding of scores.
