No civil war in Syria, says Syria Foreign Ministry
There is no civil war in Syria as such, but a counterterrorist operation is being waged in the country.
A press release by the Syrian Foreign Ministry has emphasized that the government forces are fighting against armed groups which have chosen terrorism.
The Foreign Ministry stated this in response to a statement by UN Deputy Secretary General Herve Ladsus who believes that a civil war is now going on in Syria.
The statement also accused the U.S. of interfering in the country’s internal affairs by openly supporting terrorists and covering up their crimes.
