Iranian parliamentary official Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, while congratulating Syria on the liberation of Quneitra, said the liberation of Israeli-occupied Golan Heights is possible through the efforts of Syrian people.
The Iranian Parliament Director General for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian congratulated the Syrian people, armed forces, and President Bashar Assad on the liberation of Quneitra, and voiced confidence that the liberation of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights would also be possible with the efforts of Syrian people.
“Congratulations to the Syrian people, armed forces, and president on the liberation of Quneitra from the clutches of Al-Nusra Front terrorists and the Zionists,” wrote the Iranian parliamentary official in a tweet on Sunday. “This victory means that the liberation of the occupied Golan Heights is possible with Syrians’ efforts.”
Syrian government forces raised the Syrian flag in Quneitra on Thursday, as the government continued its push to regain full control of the Syrian Golan Heights bordering Israel and Jordan.
The liberation of Syria’s southwestern Quneitra province has brought Syria on the doorsteps of Israel, causing major concerns for the regime. Israel took control of 1,200 square kilometers of the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six Day War and annexed it in 1981 in an illegal move that was never recognized internationally.
