Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad says the “victory of Israel” is the only reason behind a potential strike against Syria.
According to Xinhua, late on Friday, Miqdad said in an interview in the capital Damascus that the United States “works only under Israel’s order and at its behest,” adding, “Israel is behind everything”.
The deputy foreign minister said, ” Obama must not forget that America has become isolated”.
Miqdad added that “the Russian stance is the ethical and responsible one.”
Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said the number of Syrian refugees, who have fled the country’s 29-month-long conflict, reached two million.
