“Our war against terrorism will continue, and the armed forces are called for today to give more and boost their determination to eradicate terrorism from every inch of our beloved land and to restore security and stability to the homeland,” he said.

The Minister asked God to have mercy upon the souls of Syria’s martyrs who died while defending the country, wishing speedy recovery for the wounded and extending greetings to the families of the martyrs and the injured.
