Syria: Defense Minister Says Country Facing Foreign Conspiracies


Syria’s Minister of Defense Ali Habib on Sunday said the country is currently facing a conspiracy from several foreign bodies in a bid to internationalize, interfere and instigate internal conflict in the country, according to Syrian state media.

“The US and western countries have imposed sanctions on Syria and exerted pressures on the UN to issue a resolution condemning it and refer the so-called Syrian nuclear file, all to intensify pressures on Syria,” Minister Habib said in a speech at a celebration to graduate army officers under the patronage of President Bashar al-Assad, as reported by SANA.

According to SANA, Habib claimed that terrorist organizations have sabotaged, burned private and public buildings and properties, as well as killed and mutilated the bodies of the army soldiers, officers and policemen.

Nevertheless, in the opinoin of Habib, Syria is still a strong nation and immune to the pressures as a result of “the unity of its people who support the Syrian leadership to overcome the current crisis,” SANA reported.
