Alwaght- Syrians have turned out massively in rallies to express support for the country’s President Bashar al-Assad while condemning recent US-led missile attacks on the war-torn country.
Waving Syrian flags, the crowd shouted slogans in support of Assad, celebrating what they saw as a triumph in resistance to the US-led airstrikes.
The US, UK and France launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Syria early on Saturday morning, targeting alleged chemical weapons sites.
A total of 103 cruise missiles were launched during the attack, the Russian Defense Ministry said, adding that at least 71 of them were intercepted by Syrian air defense forces.
According to the Syrian news agency, SANA, the rallies were also held on the occasion of National Day (Syrian Independence Day, which marks the evacuation of French occupation forces from the country in 1946). Seventy-two years ago, the Syrians managed to achieve independence and expel the French occupier from their country. Today they are following in the footsteps of their ancestors. They are facing an aggression similar to that of the colonial West represented by terrorism. They are confident in completing what the ancestors achieved and fortifying independence after eliminating the last terrorist on the homeland.
Syrians are now rewriting history and fighting the battle of honor and dignity against the colonists in their new form of terrorist gangs that run their terrorist operations on behalf of the United States, the Israeli entity and the colonial West.
As the will of the Syrian people was the strongest in the battles of honor to gain independence in 1946, today the Syrians along with the Syrian Arab Army continue their battle against the terrorist organizations.
Syria is resistant to the enemies and all the projects of fragmentation and that it is able to withstand and win as it also ready to thwart the plots of the Zionist entity, the US and other Western colonial countries to move Syria towards a decisive victory over the new colonists and their terrorist tools and achieve the greater victory by defeating another terrorist from the homeland.
