Syrian Foreign Ministry Says French, US Statements on Aleppo Victory “Odd”
The Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry wondered at the statements of the foreign ministers of France and the US on the Syrian Arab army’s recent victory in Aleppo.
The French and U.S. statements, which imply bewilderment at the army’s victories, are quite odd, an official source at the Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.
The army sealed an important victory on Wednesday by breaking the long time terrorist siege of Nubbul and al-Zahraa towns in the northern countryside of Aleppo province, which followed a series of other previous victories.
The siege, which was imposed by the two terrorist organizations of Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham among others, lasted for three and a half years, during which the locals showed “an unrelenting resilience and unshakable confidence in victory over the terrorists,” according to the source.
With this victory, over 60,000 Syrians were freed as the “brutal siege” came to an end, said the source.
It highlighted that the French and U.S. foreign ministers’ statements belied their feigned care for the Syrian people.
They have further indicated the close connection between the terrorists and the countries conspiring against Syria that are moving ahead unbridled with their involvement in shedding Syrian blood, said the source.
It also underscored these countries’ continued support to the terrorists and their tools of the mercenary opposition groups through providing them with the political cover to veil their responsibility for the Syrian people’s prolonged suffering.
The source stressed that the Syrian people, hand in hand with the Armed Forces, are now more determined than ever to continue their fight against terrorism.
The Syrian people, the source added, are also committed to serious work to find a political solution to the crisis through dialogue among the Syrians.
