BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 P.M.) – President Bashar al-Assad and the forces which fight under his banner have won the Syrian War according to a former high-ranking Israeli security official that recently spoke with the Al-Monitor media center.

The former security official, speaking to Al-Monitor, argued that regardless of the amount of territory any one alliance group (i.e. pro-government forces, the Syrian Democratic Forces, ISIS, etc) holds, this factor alone is no longer an indicator of victory in Syria.

Rather it is the case that that victory in Syria belongs to whoever has the most respected and effective central rule in the country.

In this regard, Assad “will be the final, unequivocal winner of [the] war,” absent some “unexpected” event, Al-Monitor’s source concluded.

Following their most recent victory at Deir Ezzor, pro-government forces have liberated about 50 percent of Syrian territory from terrorist groups. Currently, somewhere between 70 to 80 percent of the Syrian population lives voluntarily under the protection of the Damascus government.

“victory in Syria belongs to whoever has the most respected and effective central rule in the country” – LOL. Assad has lost. Syria is heading for decentralised autonomy by its people.

I highly recommend you read other than Jooish toilet paper for your news, then and maybe then you will realize Assad effectively achieved victory, there is only a few of your zionist dung bettle still walking on Syrian land and will soon be flushed to the sewers of history by the Syrian Arab Army faithful to its legitimate president in Damascus.

Don’t be ridiculous, Syrian people won. I just hope that Kurds will realize that and embrace Syrian state as their own.
