Syrian President Bashar Assad said he sees no role for the US or its coalition in Syria as long as they are supporting terrorists, explains Elizabeth Murray, a former US Deputy National Intelligence officer.
After searching areas recently liberated from ISIS along the Syria-Lebanon border, the Lebanese army has uncovered a large amount of weapons, ranging from factory-made missiles to crude homemade devices, the army said, releasing photos of the spoils.
Any form of constructive dialogue with the West and its regional allies will only be possible after they stop supporting the terrorists, Syrian president Bashar Assad has said. He also cautioned that it’s too early to talk about victory in the conflict despite recent gains by Damascus.
The Lebanese army has scored major victories in the ongoing offensive against Islamic State terrorists along the Syrian border, securing over a dozen of outposts, and raising a Spanish flag in solidarity with the victims of the terrorist attacks in Catalonia.
It's a scene repeated throughout Syria but shocking to an outsider. Citizens of Deir ez-Zor, which have been besieged by Islamic State since 2014, forced to convert most of their green spaces into extensive burial grounds.
