Taking benefits from the regional instability, US officials try to take advantage of this situation as much as possible and seek to establish a new order in the region in which they curb Iran’s political influence, Vahidi stressed.

Syria has been grappling with a deadly conflict it blames on some foreign states for more than five years.

According to a February report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced nearly half of the pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond Syria’s borders. The observatory, however, puts the number at about 270,000.
