BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister, Faisal Mikdad, stated on Wednesday that the government will retake all of the territory currently outside the control of the state.
According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), Mikdad made this comment during a meeting with a political delegation from Mauritania’s Socialist Democratic Unionist Party.
The Mauritanian political delegate, Wild Aziz, congratulated the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on their victories against terrorism, while also offering solidarity with the national government.
Late last month, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad also made a similar statement during a press conference with the Russian media.
The Syrian President vowed to retake every inch of Syria, including the Idlib Governorate and areas controlled by the US-backed forces.
Since the Syrian President’s statement, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have been steadily building up their forces around the Idlib Governorate, as they prepare to kickoff this long-awaited operation.
