Once the General Command of the Syrian Arab Army announced, in line with our Army human, patriotic, And national doctrines, and in harmony with the Army responsibility to protect civilians, public and private properties, a halt to its defensive operation, the anti-Syria forces, unfortunately some Arab and neighboring countries, sharpened their teeth and ordered their affiliated armed terrorist groups to escalate aggressions against Syrians. The tears of our beloved victims at Daf al-Shouk, al-Mahata Square, Syriac Church, mostly children celebrating al-Adha Eid, and their bereaved families, are but a testimony to the evil hatred of these countries and their proxies.
One here has right to question the benefit of such a halt, once such fanatic extremists, whose language is only hatred, killing and destruction, are still present as a cancerous cell! Anyway, a fox is never taken twice in the same snare! Two weeks ago, Dr. Jihad Maqdisi, Foreign and Expatriates Ministry Spokesman, made it crystal clear that the armed groups in Syria have twice exploited the Syrian Government's commitment to ceasefire, expanded their armed presence in some regions, and escalated their terrorist attacks, causing the more of human losses, civilians and army personnel.
Dr. Maqdisi added that the said two-times declared unilateral ceasefire by the Syrian Government happened during the operations of Arab Observers' Mission, led by General al-Dabi, and the second one was in effect last April the 12th during United Nations Observers Mission, in implementation for Kofi Annan's six-point plan.
Maqdisi called on UN Secretary general, Ki Moon, to put pressure on the said countries: Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, which finance, shelter, train and arm the armed groups inside Syria, as to get commitment from these countries, in their capacity as the countries of influence on the armed groups, to cease their terrorist acts.
Thus, the Syrians aren't taken by surprise during their Adha! The majority recognizes that until orders are given by the trouble-makers of today's global village to their proxies as to stop the bloodshed, the Syrians are and should ever be ready to defend their homeland, sovereignty, integrity and unity. The Syrians can't tolerate the crimes perpetrated by the foreign-backed terrorists against them, nor can forget the dear tears and blood- though of the UNSC failure to condemn terrorism against them.
