Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem says Israel is arming the Takfiri terrorists in Syria and treating the injured militants in its hospitals.
In an address to the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Friday, Muallem described Syria as a strong nation, adding that the Syrian army is making many sacrifices to cleanse the country of terrorism.
Muallem emphasized the determination of Syrians in the fight against terrorism, saying the nation’s armed forces are capable of cleansing the country of Takfiri terrorist groups.
The top Syrian diplomat stressed the significance of the anti-terror battle as a top priority for the Syrian government, warning of increasing terror activities by Takfiri militant groups, such as Daesh and al-Nusra Front, in the Middle East.
He also slammed foreign support for such extremist groups, which seek to expand their acts of violence beyond this troubled region.
Referring to the air raids carried out by the US-led coalition against purported Daesh positions, saying such raids are “useless” unless they are coordinated with the government in Damascus.
Muallem said a “Syrian-led national dialog” is the only way out of the foreign-backed crisis plaguing his country, adding that the Syrian nation and army stand united in the face of terrorism.
