U.S. Flee From Syria Means Vic­tory of Re­sis­tance Front

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN - Head of Iran’s Supreme Na­tional De­fense Uni­ver­sity Bri­gadier Gen­eral Ah­mad Vahidi said Sat. that the U.S.’ with­drawal from war-torn Syria is in­dica­tive of the Re­sis­tance Front’s tri­umph in the re­gion.

Head of Iran’s Supreme Na­tional De­fense Uni­ver­sity Bri­gadier Gen­eral Ah­mad Vahidi said the with­drawal of Amer­i­can troops from Syria is con­sid­ered as “some kind of es­cape”, adding “the US flee from Syria at­tests to the vic­tory of the Re­sis­tance in this re­gion.”

“The Amer­i­cans, whether they ac­cept it or not, have failed, but they are mak­ing ef­forts to pre­tend that they have not suf­fered such a de­feat,” he added.

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump last month un­ex­pect­edly an­nounced a US troop with­drawal from Syria, with U.S. mil­i­tary spokesman Colonel Sean Ryan an­nounc­ing Fri­day that the pull­out had be­gun. Ryan said he could not dis­cuss spe­cific time­lines, lo­ca­tions or troop move­ments, “out of con­cern for op­er­a­tional se­cu­rity.”

Mean­while, Maria Zakharova, a spokes­woman for Rus­sia’s Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs, told re­porters that if the U.S. claims about ex­it­ing Syria were true the ter­ri­tory pre­vi­ously con­trolled by the U.S. should be trans­ferred to the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment.
