Fort Russ – 14th March, 2016
With the elections in Syria scheduled for April 13th, what is currently happening on the ground is of paramount importance in regards to influencing the outcome of the election. The push by Assad & allies to reclaim Palmyra from the western-backed proxies is an attempt to gain the upper hand at the negotiating table. As a result of the Syrian Army’s success, with the help of the 4+1, Assad’s position at the bargaining table is in very good stead. Consequently, the Syrian opposition have no other choice but use dirty tactics in order to regain some political power, including the twisting of language.
Joaquin Flores explains to PressTV the methods the so called ‘opposition’ are using to strip the Syrian population of their right to self-determination.
