The all leading Israeli media on theirs headline put Assad viewpoint on collaboration between Israeli air force with Syria terrorists.
Elad Benari on “Israel National News” wrote “Assad: Al-Qaeda Has an Air Force - the Israeli Air Force” and added “Syrian President accuses the IDF of conspiring with the Al-Qaeda terrorist group.”
Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad on Sunday accused the Israel of conspiring with the Al-Qaeda terrorist group.
“It’s very clear. Because whenever we make advances in some place, they attack in order to undermine the army. It’s very clear,” Assad told the American Foreign Affairs magazine.
“That’s why some in Syria joke, how can you say that Al-Qaeda doesn’t have an air force? They have the Israeli air force,” he added.
“We made some advances in the past two years, but if you want to ask me, ‘Is it going well?’ I say that every war is bad, because you always lose, you always have destruction in a war.
The main question is what have we won in this war? What we won in this war is that the Syrian people have rejected the terrorists, the Syrian people support their government more, the Syrian people support their army more,” Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad said.
