Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Faisal Mikdad stated “the continued killing and bloodshed of Syrians by the Saudi and Western killing machine is a result of a huge difference of approach between the Saudi ruling family, and Syria’s steadfastness and resistant role against domination.
“All those who share in shedding Syrian blood, like Wahhabis, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda, Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and those who sponsor them, mainly Recep Tayyip Erdogan and other killers in Paris, London and Washington, are responsible for the crimes perpetrated against Syrians,” Mikdad added in a weekly article published by the Lebanese al-Binaa newspaper on Saturday.
Mikdad questioned whether the Saudis, who are providing billions of dollars and arms to the killers of the so-called ‘Islam Army’, the ‘Free Army’, the Nusra Front and other Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists, realised that if Syrians had made their choice along with their leadership.
“All Saudi money and the money of their allies who support terrorism will not conquer Syria, as Damascus will never surrender and will never yield to an invader and a takfiri criminal,” Mikdad said.
He hailed the heroic bravery and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army, which rejects to be a slave to poisonous money and to kneel to hegemony of the enemies.
Mikdad also hailed Lebanon’s resilience in facing ISIS, the Nusra Front and Al-Qaeda, calling for enhancing the unity among Lebanese people.
