How wonderful this news is! May all who love Syria keep strongly praying for God to give great guidance to its military commanders and supernatural protection and fighting effectiveness to each pro-Assad soldier, fighter, and pilot; that He cause the terrorists to decimate each other throughout the country. That He prevent any U.S. and Israeli attacks on any pro-Assad forces in Syria.
