Syria’s Aleppo residents are celebrating the liberation of the city from foreign-backed militants. The liberation of Aleppo dealt a major blow to terrorists who have been fighting to topple the Syrian government since 2011. Thousands of Syrian troops will now be able to fight to regain other parts of their country from the terrorists.
In an interview with Press TV, political commentator Mark Glenn called the liberation of Aleppo as a huge victory not only for the Syrian government, but also 'the resistance axis', including Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, who have assisted the Syrian nation in their war against terrorism.
"Both for the Syrian military and for the people of Aleppo, this is a great victory because for years the international community and those countries under the US influence have been pushing Assad to step down," the analyst said.
The bigger victory, he said, has been achieved by the 'axis of resistance', a coalition made up of some Christian and Muslim countries, which have come together to put rivalry aside and stand up to the US and Israel, he added.
Asked about the possibility of reaching a political solution, Glenn said, “It would be nice if you could have a political solution but you are dealing with wild, feral animals here."
"These are the people who are set loose at the jails of Saudi Arabia and some of [Persian] Gulf countries, some of them hardened, merciless, drug addicts and killers ... How are we going to have a political solutions with the people who operate on a sub-human level?”
Glenn said with the liberation of Aleppo, the US and its Arab allies needed something to deviate the public attention from the recent victories by the Syrian army and that is why they have pushed Daesh Takfiri terrorists towards a new operation in the historic city of Palmyra.
"These powers are terrified that this is going to change how the world sees Assad. Thus, they have pushed these terrorists into Palmyra to rub some victory away from the other side," he added.
