Syrian general issues clarification statement about refugees


Major General Issam Zahreddine recorded a voice note on Monday to clarify a statement he made on a video late last week in regards to Syrian refugees.

The prominent Syrian general was accused by western and pro-opposition publications of threatening to kill any refugee that returned to Syria.

However, General Zahreddine clarified his stance on Monday, stressing that he meant all those who took up arms against the army are not welcome back to Syria.

The Syrian general is currently deployed in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, where he is leading his elite 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard against the so-called Islamic State.
