Parliament Speaker: Terrorism of Israel and the armed groups is one

Damascus, SANA – Speaker of the Peoples’ Assembly Mohammad Jihad al-Laham said Syria’s talk about the “first and final” aim of the terrorist war against it being that of liquidating the Palestinian cause has been proved right.

While expressing his condemnation of the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip that has been ongoing for days now, al-Laham, stressed that the new aggression comes within the scope of “the wider terrorist war” waged by the armed terrorist groups against countries in the region, foremost being Syria and Iraq.

As he underscored the U.S. and Western patronage of this war, the Speaker, addressing a parliament session on Sunday, affirmed that “the Israeli element” has stood out central since the beginning of this war.


“Syria has repeatedly said that the first and final goal of the war against us is serving the occupying entity an liquidating the Palestinian case, helped by some Arab regimes,” said al-Laham.

“What is going on today is a proof of that,” he proclaimed, highlighting how Israel is bombing and destroying Gaza, while the groups of the so-called “Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham” are inflicting destruction in Syria and Iraq.

“Terrorism is one even regardless of how many forms it may have,” the Speakers said.

The death toll of the Israeli aggression on Gaza that has been going on for 7 days has risen to over 160, in addition to more than 1000 injured.
