TEHRAN (FNA)- Washington’s plots have failed in Syria and the Syrian people and government will emerge as winners of the West-led war on their country, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Cultural Affairs and Defense Publicity Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri underscored.
“The US along with its European and Arab allies did whatever they could within their possibilities in Syria to annex this country and swallow it like a monster and therefore waged the biggest terrorist war in the region in recent centuries,” Jazayeri said on Monday.
Stressing that the Americans have failed in attaining their “evil goals” in Syria despite exercising different scenarios, he said, “There is no doubt that the final winner of this horrendous war will finally be the Syrian government and nation.”
Jazayeri described resistance as the only way to stand against what he cad “the world center of evil”, the US.
Syria sank into war in March 2011 when pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of the western and some Arab regional states.
The unrest, which is supported by the US and its Arab allies and took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
The Syrians, exhausted by the terrorist attacks of Takfiri and Salafi groups, have voiced their support for the army’s campaign against terrorism and stressed their massive turnout in the upcoming presidential election.
Syria’s presidential election will start on June 3. The vote will be held in the government-controlled parts of the crisis-hit country. Syrians living abroad are also set to vote on May 28.
Damascus has insisted that it would hold the vote despite the foreign-backed militancy that has plagued the Arab country for more than three years.
Syria has dismissed western and opposition accusations regarding the presidential election, saying that it is planning to hold a free and transparent vote.
