“The pressures on Syria to topple the Bashar al-Assad’s government are firstly an act of revenge on the resistance which has countered the Zionist regime for years,” member of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Ebrahim Aqa Mohammadi said on Thursday.
“As a leading state in the fight against the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, Syria has always been in the frontline of the resistance,” he noted.
Syria has for long been a frontline of resistance against the Zionist regime of Israel. The Arab Muslim state is seen as a refuge for many anti-Israeli leaders and figures in addition to tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees who fled their country due to Israel’s continued onslaught and massacre of the civilians.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.
In October, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of stirring unrests in Syria once again.
The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Bashar al-Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.
