Syria gets back­ing of Iran loons

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

TEE­TER­ING Syria has won sup­port de­spite its prime min­is­ter flee­ing, ac­cus­ing the vile gov­ern­ment of geno­cide.

Un­for­tu­nately for the coun­try’s tyrant leader, that sup­port came from the re­gion’s other rogue bas­ket case, Iran.

Iran’s se­cu­rity chief Saeed Jalili told Pres­i­dent Bashar alAs­sad ( above) that Syria is part of a vi­tal re­gional al­liance that Tehran will not al­low to be bro­ken.

Dur­ing talks in Da­m­as­cus, Jalili said Syria was an es­sen­tial part of an “axis of re­sis­tance”.

The state­ment came a day af­ter Syr­ian Prime Min­is­ter Riad Hi­jab de­fected to the rebel op­po­si­tion.

Chin­less tyrant As­sad had told Jalili of “the de­ter­mi­na­tion of the gov­ern­ment of Syria to cleanse the coun­try from the ter­ror­ists and fight against ter­ror­ism un­re­servedly”.

He said Syria would “continue on the path of na­tional di­a­logue” and was “ca­pa­ble of thwart­ing the for­eign con­spir­a­cies”.

Correspondents say “axis of re­sis­tance” refers to Iran, Syria, Hezbol­lah in Le­banon and the Pales­tinian group Ha­mas in Gaza.
