What senior source in #Damascus had to say about #DeirEzzor : 1-City had been under siege for 5 years - two under #Nusra & three under #ISIS
2-When #Mosul fell, #Iraqi Army had almost 10 times the number of people that #SyrianArmy had in #DeirEzzor . Few predicted we can hold on
3-#SyrianArmy presence resembled a small island surrounded by the black of #ISIS. All we had was total of 7,000 between police & soldiers
4-Of the 7,000 present, only 2,000 were truly professional soldiers. Many of these men didn't see their families for nearly 5 years.
5-Real Medical care was lacking.Leading officers who died had to be replaced several times. Total of 180,000 civilians were also under siege
6-The State had to provide the security for both citizens & troops. #ISIS did not stop its attacks against us once throughout the 3 years.
7-Everytime #Iraqi army attacked #ISIS , more of the group would move into #Syria and their attack against our troops would increase.
8-Throughout this ordeal, the #Syrian leadership did not even once contemplate or made any plans to abandon the city
9-Recall that US strike against our most important strategic position caused us to lose 10% of our troops stationed to defend airport side
10-Roads to #DeirEzzor are now open from most #Syrian cities. Citizens under control of terrorists & insurgents will soon all be freed
11-#DeirEzzor like all cities will come under one flag - the one with 2 stars under one national identity that is immune from fitna & strife
12-"Do I believe that the #Syria of the future will surprise the world but this time in how we will rebuild & move on? Yes, of course I do"
