A senior Iranian commander has warned against foreign schemes against Damascus, saying the foreign-sponsored antagonistic forces will soon be obliterated in Syria.
“The Syrian soil will soon be purged of the taint of the enemy and then it is time for the Resistance to take revenge on every enemy of Syria,” said Deputy Chairman of Iran's Joint Chiefs of Staff Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri on Tuesday.
Jazayeri reaffirmed the Syrian nation’s resolve to retaliate against their enemies, adding, “The people of Syria are extremely furious at the evil governments of the US, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other allies of the terrorists.”
He pointed out that a large front comprising the US and its allies as well as the ‘global Zionism’ have launched an all-out war against the Syrian government and nation.
Jazayeri went on to say that due to the strong presence of the Syrian people, government and armed forces, the plotters have suffered a historical and crushing defeat.
“Now the enemy cannot do anything except resorting to terrorist attacks, bombing and media propaganda,” top Iranian commander added.
“The enemy is not capable of changing the government in Syria and the people of the country and Syria’s friends will never allow it to happen.”
Last week, four senior Syrian officials including Defense Minister Dawoud Rajiha, Deputy Defense minister Assef Shawkat, Security Chief General Hisham Ikhtiyar and Assistant Vice President Hassan Turkmeni were killed in a bomb attack at the headquarters of the National Security Bureau.
The terrorist Free Syrian Army (FSA) claimed responsibility for the bombing, saying the attack was the “first in a series.”
Syria has been the scene of violence by armed groups since March 2011.
Damascus blames “outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups” for the unrest, asserting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.

"Syrian soil to be purged of enemy soon: Iran Cmdr." (PressTV-Iran)
Very interesting. Turkey appears in a list of "evil governments." And what does "the Resistance" refer to here? Not just Hezbollah but everyone in the "Resistance block"?
