Gamal Abdel Nasser's Son Likens Aggression on Syria to 1956 Tripartite Aggression on Egypt

Son of the late Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser has said the U.S. aggression, which is supported by France, Britain and the Zionist entity, against Syria is similar to the tripartite aggression on Egypt in 1956.

Eng. Abdel Hakim Abdel Nasser told the Lebanese 'al-Benaa' newspaper on Friday: "France, Britain and America fought Egypt and Egyptian people using missiles, blockade and starvation. But they failed to weaken Egyptians' resolve."


"The western colonization and its agents throughout history in the Arab world fail again in Syria, which records the greatest steadfastness and challenge," he added, asserting that the 2017 aggression on Syria will fail and Syria will win.

Last Friday at dawn, the US launched several missiles at one of the Syrian army's airfields in the central region, killing 7 persons, wounding several more and causing big material damage.

Other missiles were launched by the US at several towns in the east-southern countryside of Homs where 9 civilians, including 4 children, were reportedly martyred.

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