The Syrian Arab army and the supporting forces have proved that the achievements fulfilled in the war against terrorism had led to meet the appeals of millions of Syrians to rescue them from the flocks of Daesh, An official source at Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement commenting on a press statement issued by UN Secretary General on the situation in Syria, SANA reported.
The statement added that when the Syrian state assumes its duty, it does so to protect its citizens from crimes of terrorists, adding that Syria is the most committed side to protect the lives of its citizens.
Syria reaffirms that the terrorist organizations are the ones who used chemical weapons against civilians in Syria, supported and covered by western media, the Ministry said.
