In his interview with “Zvezda” channel of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Al-Assad said that the loss of his regime in large areas in 2014 was due to the Saudi support provided to the opposition.
Al-Assad said that the support Saudi Arabia provided to “terrorists” was shared with Qatar, the United States, Britain and France.
Al-Assad claimed that the support of Saudi Arabia and the countries he mentioned was the direct reason for calling the Russians in to support his forces at the time.
The Russian Defense Ministry had said in previous statements that it had the merit to turn the scale in favor of the Assad regime, noting that when it intervened in 2015, about 70 percent of the area of Syria was under the control of the opposition, but today the regime controls 88 percent of the country.
Al-Assad ignored the violent air strikes carried out by Russia on northern Syria, killing about 4 thousand civilians, according to a report issued by the Civil Defense in the north, “the White Helmets.”
In conjunction with Al-Assad’s statements, the pro-regime newspaper, Al-Watan, published an article for Al-Assad’s political and media advisor Buthaina Shaaban, in which he attacked Al-Rabad fiercely.
Shaaban said that the war launched by Saudi Arabia in Yemen more than 5 years ago was aimed at “selling Israeli weapons and making huge profits for arms companies.”
According to Shaaban, “Turkey’s recruitment of mercenaries and terrorists and bringing them into Syria was carried out with generous Saudi and Gulf funding.”
Shaban also devoted a portion of her article to the attack on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, accusing him of causing the entry of thousands of foreign fighters into Syria.
Shaban said that Erdogan is currently playing the same role in Karabakh, by aligning himself with Azerbaijan against Armenia.
