(Damascus) – Delivering speech at the opera house in central Damascus, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad made his first public appearance in months, calling for a “full national mobilization” to fight against rebels he described as al-Qaeda terrorists. “We meet today and suffering is overwhelming Syrian land. There is no place for joy while security and stability are absent on the streets of our country. The nation is for all and we all must protect it.”
The remarks were his first in public since a Russian television interview in November when he pledged to stay in Syria and fight to the death if necessary. A 21-month uprising against Assad has become a civil war that the United Nations says has killed 60,000 people.
