Syria: Terrorism sponsors in cahoots with Israel

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem took a swipe at Israel for aiding and abetting terrorism, stressing that Syria will emerge victorious in the face of terrorists that have invaded his country.
“The countries sponsoring terrorism are in the same front with Israel. Syria will continue resisting and has no option but to overcome terrorism,” the Syrian foreign minister said in a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tehran on Monday.

His remarks came after Sunday’s reports of Israeli airstrikes on Syria, near the capital Damascus.

Israeli planes bombed the area near Damascus international airport and the town of Dimas, the Syrian army said in a statement.

Elsewhere in his comments, Muallem said he has visited Iran to expressed gratitude to the Islamic Republic for its continued support for the Syrian nation.

Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since March 2011 with ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently controlling parts of it mostly in the east.

The US and its regional allies have been supporting the militants operating inside Syria for more than three years.

An estimated 200,000 people have been killed in over three years of fighting in the war-ridden country, according to the United Nations.
