TEHRAN (Press Shia) – The axis of resistance’s ultimate victory against terrorism in the region is in the offing, Iran’s ambassador to Damascus said, describing the failure of hostile plots against Syria as a failure for the US.

In an interview with Al-Ekhbariya news, Javad Torkabadi denounced the US for its “suspicious” and destructive role in the Middle East.

Hailing Syria’s military gains against terrorist groups, the envoy said the failure of hostile ploys against Syria amounts to the failure of the US.

The axis of resistance and regional nations are on the verge of victory against terrorism, he added.

The ambassador also referred to Iran and Russia’s help for Syria, saying it has been fully coordinated with the Damascus government.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various terrorist groups, including Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), controlling parts of it.

Meanwhile, Iran and Russia have formed an alliance in the fight against terrorism, with both supporting the Damascus government against foreign-backed militancy.
