Backers of al-Riyadh opposition derail intra-Syrian dialogue

It has been crystal clear that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, France and UK have no desire to see the political settlement in Syria move forward. These countries are aiding in the escalation of terrorist activities, arming terrorists and attempting to blow up the agreements reached between the Russia and the United States, especially the cessation of hostilities agreement.Over the last threeweeks, thousands of terrorists have crossed the border with Turkey into Aleppo and its countryside.

The recent  round talks in Genevawas moving forward despite of the decision of “Riyadh opposition” delegation to suspend its participation in Geneva talks. The dialogue was conducted with the Republic’s delegation and other delegations of the opposition even if the “Riyadh opposition” group wants to suspend its participation.

Terrorism against Syrians

Terrorism against Syrian

The Western Press does not have anything to say about terrorism in Syria. These acts are perpetrated by groups of foreign combatants, supported by a few Syrian collaborators, and armed and funded by Germany, Saudi Arabia, Bulgaria, the United States, France, Israël, Qatar, the United Kingdom and Turkey. Here is a list of the terrorist attacks of which Syrian civilians have been victims since the start of the year.

Voltaire Network | Damascus (Syria) | 5 May 2016

 

The cessation of hostilities came into force on the 27th February 2016 at midnight (Damascus time).

However, the civilian populations continued to be widely attacked by groups described as the «moderate opposition» who were invited to participate in the «inter-Syrian» negotiations in Geneva, and also by the jihadists of Al-Qaïda and Daesh.

Martyrs’ Day, call for continuing struggle and eliminating terrorism

Martyrs’ Day is an occasion for inspiring the meaning of sacrifices and continuing the march of struggle for liberating the occupied Syrian Golan, achieving new victories, eliminating terrorism and restoring security and stability to all Syrian areas. Martyrs’ Day is also an occasion to promote the culture of resistance and the values of martyrdom and to strengthen the confidence in the Arab fighters away from frustration and despair.

Syrian people nationwide mark today the centenary of Martyrs Day inspiring the heroic deeds of their fathers and forefathers to defeat takfiri terrorism which has plagued the country over the past five years in implementation of the Zionist project against Syria and the region as a whole.

US deployment to Syria ‘largely symbolic’

US deployment of 250 troops to Syria is “largely symbolic,” says a political activist, arguing that Washington wants to portray itself at the vanguard of war on the Daesh Takfiri terror group instead of bringing down the government in Damascus.

Speaking in Hannover, Germany, US President Barack Obama announced Monday that an additional 250 US Special Operations Forces (SOF) troops would be sent to the war-ravaged country in the coming weeks. 

According to Boston-based political commentator, Daniel Patrick Welch, the announcement is both “alarming and revealing.”

On the one hand, Obama had promised not to put any boots on the ground there, while on the other, the US seems to be “taking advantage” of the situation in Syria, gripped with a “rupture” in the ceasefire, Welch told Press TV in a Tuesday interview.

“It’s not that many troops when you think of it… And it’s largely symbolic and the symbolism is to counter the reality that the US was -- and is -- in the forefront of trying to oust the legitimate government of Syria by coup, by a foreign-backed force,” he said. “They’re there to kind of imply the opposite that they’re there to help counter ISIL (Daesh), which is the baby… of a group funded by the West.”

Syrian army's victories, severe blow to ISIS and its backers

The great victories of the Syrian Arab Army have been a strong and direct political and diplomatic motive for the delegation of the Syrian Arab Republic to the Intra-Syrian dialogue in Geneva.

The Syrian delegation has shown the highest level of discipline and commitment among all the groups participating in the intra-Syrian dialogue, while from the very beginning of the current round of the  talks, the Riyadh delegation started to stir problems that derail the political solution by order of their masters in Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar.

The dialogue is targeted by the Saudi, Turkish and Qatari diplomacy because they don’t want a peaceful and political solution in Syria and they are able to fabricate stories that somehow impede the dialogue such as the federalism and other stories .
