As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) In a message to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Friday, Assad expressed his and “the Arab people of Syria’s warmest condolences” to the Leader and the Iranian nation.

 

Assad said the Syrian people would never forget Lieutenant General Soleimani’s support for the Syrian Arab Army in defense of Syria and against terrorism.

 

Describing the assassination of Soleimani as a “criminal act” serving “Zionist and imperialist designs,” Assad said his martyrdom would strengthen the will of the resistance axis.
