Terrorists still occupy parts of Syria and plan to continue the war, the president said.
The war in Syria is not over until some territories of the country are occupied by terrorists. This was stated by the President of the country Bashar Assad.
“While terrorists occupy some areas of our country and commit various crimes and murders, the war is not over. And I think that their leaders intend to make it so that it continues for a long time,” Assad said.
The armed conflict in Syria has been going on since 2011. During this time, about 400 thousand people died, almost 7 million left the country, some of them have already returned.
In the city of Al-Bab, controlled by pro-Turkish militants, in northern Syria, unknown persons blew up a truck packed with explosives.
The explosion killed fifteen people, more than fifty were injured. According to some reports, a suicide bomber could be driving the truck.
Turkish groups accuse Kurdish formations of the attack.
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem accused Turkey of supporting terrorists of the Jabhat al-Nusra group. He stated this, speaking at the general political debate of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly (GA).
“The Turkish regime is one of the main sponsors of terrorism in the region. He continues to support Jabhat al-Nusra and related groups, ” the minister said.
The presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed on a ceasefire in Idlib at the talks in Moscow on March 5. The parties agreed on an additional protocol, according to the terms of which all hostilities on the contact line in Idlib are ended and the so-called security corridor is created along the M4 highway passing through Idlib. The reason for the high-level talks was a sharp aggravation of the situation in the province, as a result of which at least 62 Turkish soldiers were killed in January-February.
