BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem stated on Tuesday that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) recent missile strikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) was both legal and within the framework of Syria’s national sovereignty.
Muallem told Al-Mayadeen TV on Tuesday that Iran had every right to launch this attack against the Islamic State, as they are operating legally inside Syria.
The Syrian Foreign Minister then said that Syria is in the last chapter of its fight against terrorists.
“The last chapter in the Syrian war includes the liberation of Idlib and northeast Aleppo from Manbij to the eastern part of the Euphrates.”
Muallem added, ‘all sides are sure that Syria will end its last fight against terrorism as well.’
