Independence Day, Inexhaustible Source of Inspiration to Defend Our Rights, Sovereignty and Dignity

As the Syrian people celebrate the 73rd anniversary of the Independence Day, they are more determined to step up their struggle against takfiri terrorism and its supporters. They are also more determined to strengthen their steadfastness against the unfair sanctions imposed on Syrian people after the failure of the terrorist war which was launched with the aim of making it change its firm and principled stands towards the Arab Israeli conflict. 

 This year's celebrations co-incided with the ominous declaration  made by US President Donald Trump in which he recognized the Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan.

The grandsons of the great heroes of the National Independence  have told Trump and his ilk that his declaration is null and void as it violates  the UN resolutions which consider Golan as a Syrian Arab territory occupied by Israeli forces of occupation in 1967. They are also determined to liberate occupied Golan by all possible means as their ancestors fought the French occupation and forced them out. 

The National Independence Day has been an honorable stage in Syria’s modern history. As we mark the 73rd anniversary of Independence Day, we remember with great pride the sacrifices of our fathers and forefathers who refused to bow or surrender. The struggle of the Syrian people started immediately after the decision of the French army to enter Syria. Following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, the colonialist states represented by France and Britain, immediately divided the Arab homeland between them according to the notorious Sykes Picot Agreement as if it were their inheritance.  France took Syria under its sphere of influence and issued the ill-famed Guru Ultimatum before sending Guru himself to occupy Syria. The Syrian fighters, led by the then Minister of Defense, Yousef al-Azmeh gathered at Maysaloun to repel the French invading forces. Knowing beforehand that he would not be able to face the armed to the teeth French army, and despite the acceptance of King Faisal of Guru Ultimatum,  al-Azmeh insisted to face the French at Maysaloun to tell them that their stay in Syria would not be as easy as they thought. Al-Azmeh and his friends confronted the French occupiers with their simple weapons in comparison to the highly sophisticated weapons of the French invading army. Al-Azmeh fell martyr along with scores of his friends igniting the spark of unceasing struggle. Revolts and upheavals flared up all over the country. In the coast, Sheikh Saleh al-Ali led the revolt which was one of the first acts of resistance against the French forces, and it allied itself with other revolts in the country.

Baath Party foundation anniversary

Syrian people mark today the an important landmark in the history of the Arab nation, namely the 72nd foundation anniversary of the Baath Arab Socialist Party. The anniversary coincides with the escalation of the Zionist American conspiracy against Syria and the resistance axis, especially in light of the great and landslide victories realized by the Syrian Arab army in the battle against takfiri terrorism and liberating most of the Syrian Arab territories. These great victories disturbed the US and Israel and pushed the US President Donald Trump to sign an ominous declaration recognizing the Israeli occupation authorities' sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan in a flagrant violation of the UN charter and international norms. 

Blind Bias


From the very beginning of his elections campaign four years ago, US President Donald Trump has given the Zionist agenda top priority in an attempt to gain the full support of the Zionist lobby in the US. Immediately after his election, Trump began to implement the instructions of the Zionist lobby issuing provocative statements and taking offensive decisions  against the Arabs and Muslims. Trump's first notorious act in the Middle East was offering unlimited support to the takfiri terrorist groups operating in Syria and Iraq, especially ISIS which carried out criminal and terrorist operations in both countries including several chemical attacks against innocent people with the aim of accusing Syrian army and government of carrying out these attacks. But Trump's sinister attempts were doomed failure because the Syrian government presented a lot of evidence proving that the ISIS and other takfiri terrorist groups were responsible for such criminal attacks. Trump has continued to offer limitless logistic and financial support to terrorist groups operating in Syria with the aim of  prolonging the Syrian crisis and destabilizing the country, especially in the aftermath of the great and landslide victories realized by the Syrian Arab army and uprooting  terrorism from vast areas of the Syrian territories.

Trump's support of  terrorist groups coincided with a sinister decision, namely the US  decision to recognize occupied Jerusalem as capital of the Israeli occupation entity and to move its embassy to it. This decision  constitutes a flagrant violation of the UN Charter and the resolutions of the international legitimacy, a desecration of the national and historical rights of the Palestinian people, and a clear attempt to liquidate the Palestinian Cause.

Source of inspiration for terrorists

Since the outset of his term as US President, Donald Trump has been a source of inspiration for terrorists and extremists because of his wrong policies, especially towards the Arabs and Muslims. Such policies have focused on supporting takfiri terror organizations in Syria, Iraq and other areas with the aim of destabilizing these states, achieving colonialist objectives and serving the Zionist agenda in the Arab and Islamic world.

 About 49 people were killed and tens of others were injured due to a horrible massacre that targeted two mosques in Christchurch  in New Zealand.

Record of conspiracies

The unholy role played by Britain in the Arab region has been known to everyone. At the beginning of the 20th century, Britain, in cooperation with France, tried to inherit the weak Ottoman empire through signing the Sykes-Picot Agreement through which they divided the Arab states between them as if they were inheritance.

On 28th June 1919, the League of Nations issued the mandates for Ottoman Mesopotamia and Ottoman Syria between Britain and France, with the former taking control over modern day Iraq and Palestine and the latter taking control over the regions of Syria and Lebanon.
