Syria Reserves Right of Self Defense: Assad

Alwaght- Syrian President Bashar al Assad says his government has a duty to defend the country’s borders amid continued Israeli violations of its airspace.

Answering a question from Russian media outlets in Damascus on Monday regarding threats by Israeli war minister to the effect that the Tel Aviv regime would destroy Syrian air defense systems, Assad emphatically pointed out that, “We don’t have to ask ourselves that question, whether there were statements by Israeli officials or not. We don’t base our policy and decisions on their statements. So, of course, it’s our right and duty to defend our country.”

Assad referred to the summoning of the Israeli regime’s envoy in Moscow after the Tel Aviv’s jets violated Syrian airspace and noted that Russia can play a role to prevent further Israeli violations.

Touching on the recent US attack on a Mosque near Aleppo where 50 civilians were killed, Assad said, “US policy is based on many standards, not double; they have maybe ten standards because they don’t base their policy on values or on international law; they base it on their own vision, their own interests, sometimes on the balance of different lobbies and powers within the American institutions”. He added that the US deems its raids against ISIS in Mosul in Iraq as something good but while the same raid by the Syrian and Russian army airplanes or troops on the ground in Aleppo to liberate the people of Aleppo is against human rights according to their political discourse.

Answering questions about the presence of US troops in Syria to ostensibly battle ISIS, President Assad noted that, any military operation in Syria without the approval of the Syrian government is illegal and is an invasion. He added that if there’s a plan to liberate al-Raqqa. He added that the so called plan by the US to liberate Raqqa from ISIS terrorists in not meant to fight the terror group but to breakup Syria and wreck the country’s sovereignty.
