Syrian expats held concert in Lattakia city in support of Syrian army's steadfastness

Last Thursday, the visiting Syrian expatriates delegation and the Baath Arab Socialist Party's Lattakia branch held a concert at the theater of Dar al-Assad in Lattakia city to show support for the steadfastness of the Syrian people and army in fighting terrorism.

The concert included dances and plays performed by children reflecting the cultural diversity of the Syrian people, according to the official news agency (SANA).

The agency quoted the Syrian expatriate Dr. Samir Issa as saying that the members of Syrian communities abroad are ready to take part in rebuilding Syria.

"Syria is the cradle of civilizations and religions, and its people have played a key role in disseminating the values of tolerance and love all over the world. It faces a global terror war that aims to destroy what has been built by the Syrian people over the past decades in order to serve the interests of the world Zionism and its allies in the region," he added.

On her part, chairwoman of the Culture and Media Office in the BASP's Lattakia branch Eng. OmaimaSaed said that Syria is fighting terrorism on behalf of the whole world and it will triumph. 

Last Monday, the expatriates delegation called for holding a general conference for Syrian expatriates in Damascus before the end of this year and activating their role in the national reconciliation and Syrian-Syrian dialogue.

The delegation, which was composed of figures from political, economic, media, and social fields that represent the Syrian communities abroad plus a number of European journalists, also called for forming a consultation committee in the People's Assembly [Parliament] to directly contact with expatriates' committees abroad.

It arrived in Damascus last Sunday on a week- long visit during which it held talks with Syrian officials, clergymen and businessmen.

Since 2011, a foreign-backed terror war has been waged on Syria targeting its people, army, civilization and infrastructures in accordance with the US-Zionist plot that aims to fragment the region and to have hegemony over its wealth.

About 360.000 foreign terrorists from 93 countries came to fight against the Syrians from April 2011 till January 2016, according to the German Firil Center for Studies. While media reports have confirmed that Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, the U.S., France, Britain and Israel support – by all means-terrorist organizations operating in Syria.
