A media conference especially dedicated to back Syria’s fight angst extremist terror groups will be held in the capital Damascus on the 24th and 25th of July.
According to state officials, more than 150 media figures, journalists, reporters, TV hosts and politicians will be rallying at the Damascus Opera House to discuss the rise of extremism recently swept over the region, and its devastating consequences.
“The attendees represent different political and partisan trends, but they all agree on the peril of takfiri extremism and the necessity to uproot this epidemic phenomenon before it is too late”, an official from Syria’s Ministry of Information told reporters.
The conference, dubbed “International Media Conference Against Tafkiri Terror”, is not the first held in the war-torn country since the uprising broke out in 2011. On November 2014, Damascus hosted a similar conference which was attended by tens of terror experts from around the world.
Syria’s once peaceful demonstrations has turned into a bloody civil war when the radical Islamists took arms against security and military personnel. Ever since, the country has become a hob for extremist militants flocking from all over the world to topple the secular regime of President Bashar al-Assad and establish Shariaa-run cantons.
Groups blacklisted as world terror organizations such as the Syrian al-Qaeda branch; Jabhet al-Nusra and the notorious Islamic State have found ground in Syria, turning the country into a raging battleground and perpetrating the most barbaric anti-humane acts ever.
