Syrian army is a fighter against terrorism
With the end of Ramadan, a new round of intensification of terrorist crimes against the people of Syria began. June 28 gangsters calling themselves “the opposition” fired mortar shells at the Al-Adawi and Mezze-86 neighborhoods in the capital. In the first quarter, the hospital became the object of the attack, in the second - the school. Fortunately, there were no major casualties, but one person was injured. However, the buildings suffered a lot of material damage.
In the province of Damascus, five children and one adult were injured as a result of the terrorist shelling of the village of Gazlany. On a section of the highway near the city of Duma, the fighter-sniper opened fire on a truck passing by. As a result, he collided with a passenger bus. Four people were hospitalized with various injuries.

A much more tragic consequences entailed a terrorist attack in the city of Homs on July 30. A mined car went off the air in the city of Homs, in the Wadi Al-Dahab area. As a result, two people were killed and 26 injured. The attack occurred in an area where there are many shops, so he also caused enormous material damage.
31 July in the western part of the city of Hasak, mortar shelling, carried out by terrorists, claimed the life of a child. Eight people were injured, among them - people who are in critical condition, some had to amputate limbs.
There is no reason to wait for the world to condemn all these terrible crimes. This is just any terrorist attack in the United States or the so-called "civilized" countries immediately causes a lot of noise and talk about the need to combat terrorism. Terrorism in Syria worries very few of those sitting in luxurious cabinets. On the contrary, the bandits also provide assistance.
So far, despite all the loud talk about the fight against terrorism that has been shaking the world for more than a decade, there is only one force that is really fighting with the bandits in Syria. This is the country's army.
1 August Syrian Armed Forces celebrate the holiday - Army Day. On this occasion, supreme commander of the UAR, Bashar Al-Assad, traditionally addressed the Army of the People magazine. He congratulated the servicemen on the 69 anniversary of the formation of the army and greeted the soldiers and officers who continue to fulfill their constitutional duty to protect the country.
Bashar al-Assad also noted that the Syrian army since the first day of its foundation is a school of courage and heroism. Throughout all these decades, the military have defended the security of the homeland and the honor of the entire Arab nation. Today they continue their struggle, successfully smashing all the plans of the enemies of Syria. With unparalleled courage, the head of state stressed, they are fighting terrorism. “You are the heroes of our Motherland, and all the sons of the Syrian people believe in you,” the president’s address said, “There can be no compromise in the battle for the Motherland. Syria will never give up its patriotic foundations. ”
In addition, the Syrian leader congratulated relatives and friends of the army.
Among the recent successes of the servicemen is the clearing of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant from the terrorists in the Homs gas field from the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. The liberated territory was visited by the Minister of Oil and Mineral Resources Suleiman Al-Abbas. He appreciated the damage to the object, and welcomed the fighters who won this important victory.
The situation in Syria was one of the topics for discussion at the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Dushanbe. The Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the SCO member countries stated that the crisis in the SAR can only be resolved by political and diplomatic methods, and called for the continuation of the internal Syrian dialogue process based on the Geneva communique of 30 June 2012. They also stressed that no form of foreign intervention in the internal affairs of Syria is intolerable.
Of course, all these statements by influential international organizations, the position of friendly countries are extremely important, but the most important thing is, of course, the situation on the battlefield. And today it is determined by the Syrian army, which protects its people.
