BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – On Wednesday, Syrian President, Bashar Al-Assad, explained the reason for the repeated Israeli attacks on the city of Deir Ezzor and the role of the “Caesar Act” that targets the Syrian economy.

In a speech delivered today to the newly elected Syrian People’s Assembly, the President said, “The Israeli attacks on Deir Ezzor came to facilitate the movement of ISIS terrorists.”

The airstrikes referenced by the Syrian President are the late night attacks carried out by enemy aircraft near the Iraqi border.

The Syrian President then turned his attention to the U.S. Caesar Act, which he said is not “a separate or abstract case from the previous stages of the siege,” which had grave negative effects on Syrian society.

The Syrian President pointed out, “The United States needs terrorists in the region, especially ISIS,” saying that the act is meant to benefit terrorist groups.

Assad stressed that “the war will not prevent us from fulfilling our duties and the power of peoples to adapt to circumstances and adapt them to their advantage.”

The Syrian President pointed to the reason that made him meet with members of the People’s Assembly outside the dome of the Syrian Parliament, saying: “This session was supposed to be held under the dome of the Council as usual, but the necessity of measures to confront coronavirus led to it being held in the People’s Palace.”

Assad considered that the election of the Syrian People’s Assembly constitutes “a historic stage of the war, the details of which have been written by our people by the voters’ stances, their will and their challenge.”

The President directed his speech to the elected members of Parliament , saying: “The elections you have recently witnessed are different despite the coronavirus epidemic and its impact on the reluctance of some to participate.”

He added: “There was a multiplicity of regulations and real competition, and this competition is a national movement, and any national movement is a positive movement because it expresses national commitment. “

There are those that will come before us and tell a continuation of the big lie. This is their forte. To try to make people believe their lies is paramount for them, it is how they sow dissent. Especially after commiting a major atrocity, it is their desire to blame others as the culprit to deflect blame from themselves. Everyone knows who created, organized and sustains the world wide terror network…spreading it throughout the entire world to friend (slave) and foe alike. Power and control is their goal, achieved through deception and grave criminal acts. There is no crime they… Read more »

Actually, Mr. Assad, you should consider who gained the most benefit from ISIS shït so you know who is the culprit!

Who has puppet militias in Iraq even daring at launching missiles on US embassy, consulate and bases? Who dreams about destroying Israel and now has troops in Syria and can deliver weapons at will to its puppet army into Lebanon? And as we are, who has a puppet Army who did a coup in Yemen?
Never heard about the Shia crescent?

Don’t you notice that Iran gained tremendous influence?
Don’t you remember that once Qaeda and later ISIS founder Zarqawi hid into an IRGC base in 2001 before being smuggled into Iraq by Soleimani’s Quds Force?
Then Iran used his presence to associate Saddam with Qaeda and lurring Dubya and Chenney into invading Iraq and booting Saddam!
Maybe should you read what Machiavelli wrote about Alexander the Great : it’s THE SAME STRATEGY BEING APPLIED!!!

It’s NOT either USA or Israel that created this mess! It’s Turkey, Qatar and Iran, all led by… Islamists! In case you didn’t noticed : al-Qaeda never did a single attack against Iran! Remember, dear Bashar! You’re secular! What do you think your great friend Khamenei wants? A secular Syria? As soon the useful idiot your will be useless, what do you think will happen to you and your family? Remember what happened to Baderddine? The only ones that had the ability to kill him were either IRGC or fellow Hezbo. He served well Khamenei… Until ISIS started attacks in… Read more »

Israel and USA are pursuing other goals. Didn’t Israel proposed you a genuine peace treaty similar to what they have with Egypt and Jordan? Didn’t Bibi recently said that had you engaged into peace in 2008, this mess wouldn’t had started? Since you didn’t wanted peace, neither Israel nor USA saw any interest at preventing ErDOG and Hamad al-Thani, then later Tamim al-Thani to engage into grim projects again Syria? If Israel and/or USA are your enemies, it’s because YOU want them as enemies! You should also remember that it was Russia that evacuated Afrin, letting the Turk invade, while… Read more »

You perfectly know why Israel does strikes : the reason is ALWAYS the sam : prevent weapons transfers to Lebanon… For sure they have few envies at being nice to you while, even if you don’t act directly, you let UNSC-banned arms transfers to Hezbo happening, these having already started a war with Israel, do you think Israelis will let Hezb get what they want and once they have enough guided weapons, attack all infrastructures into Israel? For the Yanks, they really want to leave the Mid-East, but a stabilized Mid-East. Do you really think that with IRGC in Syria,… Read more »
