Iran has warned Saudi Arabia that their troops will be wiped out in Syria if they “dare” to invade the country, after Riyadh expressed eagerness to deploy their army to the war-zone earlier this week if the US-led coalition decides that such an operation is necessary.
The Syrian army and the people’s militia are continuing to solidify their positions around Daraa in southwestern Syria, launching an offensive against Al-Nusra fighters and their affiliates from multiple directions to secure the strategic Damascus-Quneitra-Daraa triangle.
Militants from Al-Qaeda affiliates, Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar ash-Sham, have trained teenagers to commit acts of terror in Damascus, Homs and Latakia provinces, the Russian Defense Ministry said citing data received from the Syrian opposition forces.
The Geneva peace talks on Syria fell apart because parties involved in the negotiations are not interested in peace in the country; they are interested in war, William Jones of Executive Intelligence Review magazine told RT.
The Syrian armed forces and volunteer units aided by Russian air power have managed to drive back an extremist onslaught in the northern Hama province, a day after Al-Nusra-aligned groups announced a full-scale operation to regain weakening positions.
