Damascus, SANA – President Bashar al-Assad on Friday evening held a call with Colonel Mahmoud Sabha, the commander of a group of Syrian Arab Army soldiers who were in Jisr al-Shughour Hospital.
“Your heroics are an expression of every soldier in the Syrian Arab Army. You held your ground and stood fast because you know neither defeat nor surrender,” President al-Assad told Col. Sabha.
“Your faith in God and your confidence that your colleagues in the Syrian Arab Army are coming to break the siege imposed on you are an indicator of the nature of this army, its conviction, and its faith in itself and in its members and their heroics.
“Your lives and the lives of every soldier in the Syrian Arab Army and popular defense forces always have been and always will be our foremost consideration, and we always seek to protect them,” President al-Assad said.
