President al-Assad: Syria strong thanks to its people, national choices and free decision… determined to restore national rights
RAQQA– H.E. President al-Assad Performed Eid al-Adha Prayer along with thousands of Syrian citizens at al-Nour Mosque in Raqqa, 550 kilometers from Damascus.
Sheikh Abdil Azim Sheikho delivered the Prayer’s ceremony highlighting the sublime meanings of the blessed al-Adha as well as the ongoing process of reform in Syria under the Leadership of H.E. President al-Assad.
Sheikho called for the bolstering of Syria’s National Unity in the face of the conspiracies hatched by Syria’s enemies, blasting the recent US calls on armed groups’ members in Syria as not to surrender themselves to the Syrian Government nor to hand their weapons over to the Government.
Syrian Ministry of Interior issued Friday an amnesty for those who hand over within a week illegal arms and weapons, used intensively by armed terrorist groups against the Syrians.
“The process of reforms announced by you since your first day of your leadership is but the genuine and sincerest proof of your serious keenness on the realization of reform objectives combating corruption in all of its forms,” Sheikh Sheikho addressed H.E. President al-Assad.
“Syria, thanks to the wisdom of president al-Assad, God’s willing would emerge from crisis stronger and more steadfast,” added Sheikho pledging that Syria is ever to remain the bastion of steadfastness in the face of the sinister bids seeking its destruction.
