The Strategic Role of Syria

The opening of Syria's crossing points with Jordan, the occupied part of the Israeli occupied Golan, and the ongoing measures as to cleanse what remains of terrorists and their backers as to reopen all crossing points with Iraq and Turkey is but the restoration of right, justice, peace and stability to Syria. It is a clear sign of victory against terrorism and its  supporters.

According to many analyses, one of the main reasons for such a terrorist large-scale aggression, supported by tens of the ewes, new colonialists and greedy powers,  was to dismember Syria into tiny parts and to isolate her.

Syria is indeed the cradle for geography, history and for civilization. Syria, thanks for the brave Martyrs, wounded heroes, for her Army, People, President, allies and anti-terrorism forces, was able to keep its unity, integrity and independence.

October Liberation 2018


DAMASCUS, (ST)_ On the 45th   Anniversary of October Liberation War, the Syria Times is honored to publish the historic speech of the late President Hafez Al-Assad on this occasion:

Brotherly citizens,

Our brave soldiers and army officers,

Our great people,

I salute each and every one of you. I address in you, today, the true Arabian spirit, the spirit of courage and heroism, the spirit of sacrifice and giving.

I address in you, your love to the homeland, and your faith in the cause you have decided to defend. For more than a week, the enemy has been mobilizing  and premeditating its forces, thinking it will deal a treacherous blow to us. But we were vigilant enough to monitor its movements and cantonments, and to repel its new potential aggression.  We did not allow the enemy to take us by surprise. So, our armed forces respond appropriately  to it  . Our brothers in Egypt did  not allow  the aggression  to take them by surprise. The great army of Egypt rushed to defend the dignity of Egypt and the dignity of the Arab Nation. Greetings to our army and  to our people, and a tribute to the army of Egypt and the great Arab people of Egypt.

THE Most Gratifying Human Talk

Sheihk Sabah Al-Mohamad, the Kuwaiti Al-Dar Media Group Chairman, met during his recent visit to Damascus with H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad. Sheihk Sabah published, in Arabic, some of President Assad's quotes, his own observations and impressions about his meeting with President Assad, according to

 I have had the honour to meet H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad at his home in Damascus and to have a one and half hour talk with him. It has indeed been the most gratifying human talk with the distinguished Arab Leader. H.E. President Assad was in person receiving me at the entrance of his house smiling with pride, self-confidence and elegance. It has indeed been a cordial social meeting in a magical setting in a white salon, wall, white chairs and white marble overlooking from a wooden Damascene window a green garden, and with a refreshing drink of flowers conducive to the setting whiteness.

A brief review of the Syria Times Online: , relaunched On October 6, 2012, and of President Bashar Al-Assad unofficial Website:, launched in 2007- as a personal dedication by Dr. Mohamad Abdo Al-Ibrahim- necessitates indeed at least, given about 30 millions of clicks and visits from around the globe, a one-year thorough reading for what has been stated by H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad, considered by many as, not only the defender, protector and most popular humanitarian world leader, but too as the second to none observer, analyst and strategist president journalist, especially when it comes to foreign mainstream media language, discourse and dubious goals!
