Syria President Assad: Aleppo Victory Historic, Major Turning Point
President Bashar al-Assad on Thursday congratulated Syrians on the liberation of Aleppo, as terrorists evacuated their last stronghold in the city.
The city’s liberation was “history in the making and worthy of more than the word congratulations,” he said in a video posted on the presidency’s official social media accounts.
He described the army’s capture of Aleppo as a major turning point.
“I think that after the liberation of Aleppo we’ll talk about the situation as… before the liberation of Aleppo and after the liberation of Aleppo,” he said.
