Syrian army will not allow Western states and proxies to prolong 'terrorist' control in Syria - state media

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria’s army will not allow Western states and their proxies to prolong “terrorist” control in Syria, a foreign ministry source cited by state news agency SANA said on Friday.

The source said Syria’s army would continue its campaign to eradicate militant groups from all parts of Syria, a day after air strikes in northwestern Syria killed 33 Turkish troops and raised the prospect of a more intense confrontation.
