In an interview with the al-Alam News Network on Wednesday, President Bashar Al-Assad underscored his country’s full support for “any act of resistance, whether against terrorists or against occupying forces regardless of their nationality.”

President Al-Assad has described the US, French, Turkish and Israeli troops present in his country as “occupying forces.”

Mentioning the presence of fighters of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement in his country, President Assad said that “the battle is long and the need for these military forces will continue for a long time.”

He added that even though Iran has no military bases in Syria, Damascus is ready to let them in if necessary.

In an earlier interview with the Daily Mail, President Assad accused the West of attempts to oust his government.

“We are fighting the terrorists, and those terrorists are supported by the British government, the French government, the Americans and their puppets whether in Europe or in our region,” Assad said.

“They tell lies, they talk about chemical weapons, they talk about the bad president killing the good people, freedom, peaceful demonstrations,” he added.

Invited by Damascus, Iranian military advisors are on the ground in Syria helping the government forces win the war, while Hezbollah units have been helping flush out terrorists in areas along Syria’s border with Lebanon.

If you believe in a loving God who answers prayer, now is a good time to start calling upon Him to give supernatural help to the Houthis as they try to stave off the Gulf attack on their last remaining port. Ask God to give supernatural protection and fighting effectiveness to the Houthis and great strategies to their leaders. Conversely ask God to cause the Gulf forces to make egregious strategic blunders. If your God isn’t concerned enough to act on behalf of people being mistreated, then He wouldn’t be worth relating to.
