Assad: The War is Turning in Our Favor


Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad said on Sunday that the war that has torn Syria apart for three years and cost more than 150,000 lives is turning in the government's favor, AFP reported, citing the state news agency SANA.

"This is a turning point in the crisis, both militarily in terms of the army's achievements in the war against terror, and socially in terms of national reconciliation processes and growing awareness of the truth behind the (attacks) targeting the country," claimed the embattled president.
