Quneitra SANA- Forty-six years have passed since the anniversary of the liberation of Quneitra from the Israeli occupation and raising of the Syrian flag in the city , the Syrians affirm determination more than ever to continue their struggle till liberating the occupied Syrian Golan and every inch of Syrian land whether from terrorism or from the occupational forces which support it.
On June 26th, 1974, is the day on which Late President Hafez al-Assad hoisted the national flag in Quneitra after it had been liberated by the Syrian Arab Army from the clutches of the Israeli enemy thanks to the heroism and sacrifices of the army personnel and the resilience of the Syrian people during October Liberation War and what it had proved of clear facts, on top Syria’s right to restore all of the occupied Syrian Golan.
Despite policies of Judaization adopted by the occupation authorities during their brutal Zionist aggression on Quneitra city,and the brutal destruction of the city to erase the national identity of Golan , yet Golan challenged these policies and remained steadfast in the face of the occupation.
Citizens of Golan strongly adhere to their belonging to the homeland Syria and reject the Israeli identity ,expressing determination to liberate the Golan and to return to the homeland.
All the Syrians in general and the Syrian citizens in Quneitra province and the occupied Syrian Golan in particular on June 26th recall proudly the moments of victory against the Zionist enemy and the restoration of Quneitra city to the homeland while they are more confident of their ability to face what is being hatched against Syria of colonial and terrorist conspiracies which target its frim resistant stances in the region.
