Political Analyst: Assad Not to Bow to Supporters of Terrorism in Negotiations
A Syrian political and security analyst underlined that President Bashar al-Assad will not abandon his rigid stance on the ongoing war against the foreign-backed terrorist groups in his country.
“Everyone knows that the Syrian president is a firm negotiator and he will not accept any solution that would harm Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity; hence we consider war as the only solution to deal with the terrorist groups and their supporters,” Syrian Political Researcher Kamal Fayaz told FNA on Sunday.
The Syrian political analyst underlined that the terrorists have no option other than fleeing the battlefield, and said, “There will surely be no negotiation or agreement with the terrorist groups such as the ISIL and the Al-Nusra Front; and the political solutions will be sought by the regional countries and the big powers.”
Fayaz pointed to the Syrian army’s military operations in Central and Northern parts of the country, and said, “The battles of Sahl al-Qab and Idlib countryside have not finished yet and these battles will surely last long.”
He reiterated that the terrorists are trying to take the battle to the coastal regions of Syria to prevent the Syrian army from hitting the terrorists’ strongholds in Eastern and Western Ghouta.
In July, a senior political analyst said the Syrian government will start earning military gains in the coming days.
“Syria will witness new political and military developments in favor of the Damascus government,” Researcher Suleiman Suleiman told FNA late in July.
He further pointed out that the recent military victories of the Syrian army shows that attempts to make the situation in Northern Syria critical have failed.
Suleiman said that the Syrian army is preparing for massive ground and air operations to purge Northern Syria of Takfiri terrorists.
“The intensified attacks by the terrorists at the present juncture shows that no political plan (for resolving the Syrian crisis) can be raised in international circles,” he added.
In May, a Syrian military expert said that the recent victories of the army and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement in Damascus countryside made the plans of the terrorists’ coalition for the al-Qalamoun region to fall flat.
“Al-Qalamoun is the scene of battle and crushing the bones of a coalition of terrorist groups known a Jaysh Al-Fath who plotted to advance towards Al-Qalamoun in two fronts in the South and the North after the visit of Zahran Aloush (commander of Jaysh al-Islam terrorist group affiliated to the Islamic Front) to Turkey, but the Syrian army and the Lebanese resistance movement ushered in the al-Qalamoun battle with the goal of defeating the terrorists’ plots,” Syrian Military Expert Ali Maqsoud told FNA.
Zahran Aloush has recently met Ahmed Issa al-Sheikh, the former commander of Saqour al-Sham in Istanbul to coordinate for terrorist attacks in al-Qalamoun.
“The Syrian army and the resistance movement’s control over 385 square kilometers of al-Qalamoun and destroying the military infrastructures of the terrorists foiled the terrorists’ strategic plan for linking Al-Qalamoun to al-Haramoun.
