In the eyes of the world result as admirable the heroic achievements of the Syrian people in the fight against terrorism and against the vilest and cruelest forms of war.

The thousands of martyrs fallen in defense of the Syrian homeland, of its territory and its invaluable heritage, will be vindicated in the victory over the terrorists and the imperial forces, which is clearly already visible on the horizon.
