Historical speech by Assad officer: “More than 8,000 Heroic Syrian Pilots ready to counter US Targets near Syria.”http://www.islamicinvitationturkey.com/2013/08/30/assad-officer-more-than-8000-heroic-syrian-pilots-ready-to-counter-us-targets-near-syria/
He said: “We have more than
8,000 suicide martyrs within the Syrian army, ready to carry out
martyrdom operations at any moment to stop the Americans and the
British. I myself am ready to blow myself up against US aircraft
carriers to stop them attacking Syria and its people.”
Speaking about the chemical attack last week on the outskirts of Damascus, he denied the involvement of government forces and said news of the gassing had come as a shock.
“Why would we use chemical weapons in
Al Ghouta, when we have government forces where the attack happened?
Over the last few days we have launched a military operation called
Capital Shield to protect Damascus and its countryside. We managed to
get 75% of the way through the process, but then we were shocked to
learn about the chemical weapons in Al Ghouta.”
He said the morale of the Syrian army was high. “They have to know thatIran and Hezbollah fighters will be fighting with us, hand-in-hand. We have an alliance of protection. We are the resistance axe in the world.”“We are ready for anything. Only God can take our souls, not

onslaught and all our rockets are ready now to be launched. We are
expecting the US and British forces to attack specific targets, so the
Syrian army has changed most of its positions and many barracks and
brigades have been moved to different sites.”
Reuters news agency said Assad’s forces appeared to have evacuated
most personnel from army and security command headquarters in central
Damascus in preparation for a western military strike.
“It is unbelievable what is happening now in Syria,” the officer said.
“Lots of Syrian men are flocking to checkpoints asking to join the army
to fight for Syria, though some of them were previously with the
“They say that when Syria is under foreign attack we will
fight with the Syrian army and forget about everything. In Damascus, we
have registered over 4,000 civilian volunteers in the last 48 hours. We
have sent them to training camps to learn how to use different weapons
and to form people committees [pro-regime home guards] to protect the
streets and districts of the capital, as the Syrian army will be busy
dealing with the US warplanes.”
“The whole army will be in a state of alert and we will need
these people to protect our back, keep security and stop things slipping
