Iran’s Senior Military Cmdr.: Syria to Be Cleared of Terrorists in A Few Months
Local Editor

Chief of the Iranian Staff Major General Mohammad Baqeri said both Tehran and Damascus will comply with a month-long Syria ceasefire declared by the UN Security Council, but that attacks will continue in the Damascus suburbs held by terrorists.

The UN Security Council unanimously passed a resolution on Saturday, demanding a 30-day ceasefire across Syria to allow for humanitarian aid deliveries and medical evacuations.

Amendments were made to exclude Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group], al-Qaeda and al-Nusra Front along with "individuals, groups, undertakings and entities" associated with the terrorist groups from the ceasefire.
Baqeri further noted that the architects of the ceasefire had it passed at the UN in order to forestall the Syrian army's eradication of terrorists in the Damascus suburbs.

"This time again, like in the past, those who do not want security and peace in Syria took up the banner of ceasefire in order to support terrorists after they saw the Syrian army and government were cleansing the Damascus suburbs," he said.

Nevertheless, "we will adhere to the ceasefire resolution; Syria will also adhere. Parts of the suburbs of Damascus, which are held by the terrorists, are not covered by the ceasefire and clean-up [operations] will continue there," he added.

The Syrian army is trying to drive out terrorists from Eastern Ghouta which has become a festering ground for foreign-backed terrorist groups to launch mortar attacks on the Syrian capital.

Baqeri said, "The Syrian army seeks to clear the land of terrorists in order to provide security for the people in Damascus, but so far 1,200 mortar shells have been fired at the city, disrupting people's security and peace."

As for the UN Security Council resolution on Sunday, he said, "The West and supporters of the terrorists insisted that this ceasefire be put in place."

"With the joint work which was done by Syria and its friends as well as the opponents of terrorists and those fighting them, including Iran and Russia, the resolution was moderated a bit in order to continue the fight on known terrorists such as Nusra Front," Baqeri said.
