SYRIA’S ASSAD SAYS DAMASCUS NEARLY WON 7-YEAR-WAR

DAMASCUS, Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, said, his administration has nearly won the seven-year-long war, as the army has made major progress in the fight against the rebels, noting that the West tries to prolong the crisis, with every Syrian victory.

“With every move forward for the Syrian army, and for the political process …, our enemies and our opponents, mainly the West, led by the United States and their puppets in Europe, and in our region, try to make it farther, either by supporting more terrorism, bringing more terrorists to Syria, or by hindering the political process,” Assad told Russia Today, in an interview, released on Thursday.

The president noted that, if it wasn’t for the foreign support to the rebels in Syria, the militants could have been defeated within a year.

He said, the claims of chemical weapons use, by the rebels and their Western backers, are part of the desperate measures undertaken by the West, to prolong the war, as the conflict is getting closer to an end, with the Syrian army determining to recapture all rebel-held areas in Syria.

Assad said, public opinion around the world didn’t buy the Western narrative, about the chemical weapons’ use by the government forces, noting that, the West couldn’t back down on their allegations, so they had to strike Syria, in reference to the U.S.-led missile strikes on Syrian sites on Apr 14.

The president, however, said, Russia’s threats to strike the bases of the missile launchers targeting Syria, have pushed the West to make their strikes limited, otherwise, it could have been a country-wide offensive by the United States and its Western backers.

“Our challenge is, how we can close this gap between their plans and our plans,” Assad said.

He said, it’s the duty of the army to liberate all of Syria because “this is our land, it’s our right and our duty to liberate it and the Americans should leave.”

About the Israelis threats to Assad and his government, the president said, the Israeli remarks and threats are a sign of their “panic” because the rebels they are backing in Syria are losing.

Regarding the repetitive Israeli air strikes on Syria and ways to stop them, Assad said, the foreign-backed “terrorists” have, from the beginning, aimed at destroying the Syrian air defences. “This is proof that Israel was in direct link with those terrorists in Syria.” He said, the recent attacks by the United States and Israel proved that the air defences are in a “better situation.” He said, the only option to respond to the Israeli attacks is by improving the air defences, and “we are doing that.”

In response to claims that Israel only targets Iranian forces in Syria, Assad said, there are no Iranian troops in Syria, but “we have Iranian officers who work with the Syrian army as a help, they don’t have troops.”

He stressed that the Israeli allegations are all lies, noting that Syrian soldiers were killed in the Israeli strikes, not Iranians.
