Israel regime launching aggression against Syria — Iranian top commander

A senior Iranian military official on Wednesday has slammed the Israeli regime for launching aggression against Syria.

Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mohammad Baqeri told his Syrian counterpart General Ali Abdullah Ayyoub that Tel Aviv’s encroachment upon the Syrian territory is not acceptable.

He added that Iran and Syria will continue to work together in the fight against terrorism.

The top commander further stressed the need to respect the territorial integrity of the regional countries.

The top Syrian general, in turn, said terrorist groups in Syria are on the verge of annihilation, and that Washington’s assistance will do them no good.

He said Tehran and Damascus both agree that Syria must be purged of terrorists.
