Iran ' s ambassador to Beirut says the Syrian Army‘s recent headways against foreign - backed militants prove that all military bids against the Arab country are doomed to failure.
“The victories of the Syrian Army proved that[the crisis] in this country has no other solution but dialog and that all types of military[approaches] are doomed to failure, ” Ghazanfar Roknabadi said in a meeting with a group of Lebanese authors and university professors on Friday. “Enemies waged a global war against Syria and targeted the country’s unity and stability by making use of all inhumane methods, including the killing of women and children, but all their efforts have failed over the past two years, ” he added.
”They[enemies] have now understood that they are unable to overthrow the Syrian establishment, which enjoys the support of the majority of its people, ” he pointed out.
On Thursday, Syrian forces liberated the Quneitra Crossing - situated between Syria and the Golan Heights - after heavy clashes with anti-government gunmen. Also on Thursday, the Syrian troops recaptured the town of al-Daba’a. This came after the Army liberated the strategic town of Qusayr on Wednesday following three weeks of fighting with the militants. Syria has been gripped by a deadly unrest since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of government forces, have been killed in the violence.
