Assad: Syria continues to liberate Aleppo and Idlib provinces, despite external pressure
DAMASCUS, (BM) – Syria will continue to be liberated from terrorists in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib, despite external pressure. This was stated on Monday in his appeal about the successful offensive of the Syrian army in the north of the country by Syrian President Bashar Assad, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
“The battle for the liberation of the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib continues,” said Assad, whose words were quoted by the office of the Syrian leader. He added that the battle against terror will continue, despite external pressure and “empty sounds and shouts that come from the northern borders of Syria.”
“We are fully aware that this liberation does not mean the end of the war or the destruction of terrorism,” the president said, adding that success in Aleppo and Idlib is “a prelude to the complete defeat of extremists, which will come sooner or later.”
Assad paid tribute to the heroism of the residents of Aleppo, who “did not capitulate, being in a severe blockade without the necessary products, without water and electricity.” “Tens of thousands of citizens died and were injured as a result of the barbaric shelling that continued during a long time in peaceful neighborhoods,” he said.
According to the president, “the resilience and unshakable will of the people of Aleppo will now be needed to revive the city from ruins so that the northern capital of Syria regains its leading role in the domestic economy.” “Aleppo and with him all of Syria triumphed over the fear that they tried to spread in our hearts, over hatred, betrayal and schism,” Assad said. “But Syria’s enemies did not surrender and their conspiracies did not stop, so the Syrians should be ready for new battles. “
The military operation in Aleppo and the neighboring province of Idlib began on January 25 after the militants disrupted another ceasefire agreement in the northern de-escalation zone. In addition to the defeat of gangs on the outskirts of Aleppo, the Syrian army returned to control over 50% of the province of Idlib. The terrorist road was completely cleared of the Damascus-Aleppo strategic highway, which connects the Syrian capital with northern industrial centers.
