The Ongoing is but a Foreign War against Syrians


DAMASCUS, (ST) H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad asserted that the ongoing is but a foreign war against Syrians.

''Had it been a domestic struggle among the Syrians themselves, Syria would have been dismembered during the first 3 months and so has been the state during the first months and perhaps during the first year,'' said President Al-Assad.

''Our stand and steadfastness as Syrians and the steadfastness of the Syrian Army in front of the standing challenges have made the Syrians withstand the ongoing unprecedented war ,'' added  H.E. President Assad, citing the important assistance and stances  by the friends of Syria, Iranians, Russians and others, who have stood with the Syrians, but surely  not on their behalf.

For the restoration of our right, we have to pay a very dear price. The first to defend this very right of the Syrians is the hero Syrian Arab Army, asserted H.E. President Assad.

'We have had in scores of your battles in many places living examples of your great steadfastness and your honourable work and resistant unbreakable and invincible will, which everyday gets more solid and powerful as to increase your presence, activity and to continue encountering the machine of terrorism and killing and foil the sinister schemes of aggression,' underscored President Al-Assad in a written word to the Syrian Soldier Magazine 'al-Joundi Al-Arabi'.
