Governor-General: Syrian Army Fully Ready to Confront Possible US Aggression against Dara’a
“The US is the main supporter of war against Syria and it is assisting the terrorists in Dara’a through Jordan,” al-Hanous told FNA on Wednesday.
“But if the US decides to deploy its forces in the Syrian territories through the Jordanian borders, it will be considered as a clear aggression against Syria’s sovereignty and the Syrian army’s general command will adopt new measures for battle in the region,” he added.
Al-Hanous, meantime, described the security situation in Dara’a as good, and said the power balance in the battlefield is heavier on the army’s side in his province.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said last Saturday that Damascus has intelligence on Jordan planning to deploy troops in Syria in coordination with the US.
Syrian President told Sputnik that the Damascus government is aware that Jordan is planning to deploy troops on its territory in coordination with the United States.
“We have such information, but anyway Jordan was part of the American plan since the beginning of the war in Syria,” Assad said.
He added that, “it’s the United States who defines the plans, who defines the players, and who endorses everything regarding Syria coming from Jordan, and many of the terrorists coming from Jordan, and of course Turkey, since day one of the war in Syria.”
The statement came following the talks between US President Donald Trump and Jordanian King Abdullah II earlier in April. The two leaders held a bilateral meeting at the White House on crucial Middle East issues, such as means to defeat ISIL terrorist group.
Jordan is a part of the US-led coalition against ISIL, which is conducting airstrikes against Daesh in Syria without the approval of Syrian authorities and the UN, thus, violating the international law.
