A Syrian army colonel, interviewed in south Syria where he was participating in the military campaign, said that the United States and Saudi Arabia were trying to divert them from their goal. “Our eyes are set on Palestine,” he said.

“Right now, we are fighting proxies. We are fighting the lackeys of the Saud clan and the lackeys of the Zionists, but soon we will be fighting their masters.”

The interview with the colonel, who was not named by Al-Manar TV, aired on the channel on July 7.

Syrian Army Colonel: “We are on our border with Palestine. Our eyes are set on Palestine. The Americans, the Saudis and others have tried to divert us elsewhere, away from our goal. The world has forgotten Palestine, but Assad’s Syria has not, and our eyes are set on Palestine. Right now, we are fighting proxies. We are fighting the lackeys of the Saud clan and the lackeys of the Zionists, but soon we will be fighting their masters.”
