Syria Tries to drag Turkey into war to Lengthen the Rule of the Syrian Regime
About the recent launch of the Syrian shells toward Turkish territory, Mr. Jamal Murad, the representative of the Syrian Coordination in Austria for support of the Syrian revolution said: “The Syrian regime is trying by all means and ways to drag Turkey into the war in order to prolong the rule of the Assad regime and to create a new regional Syrian international order favorable to Syria”.
According to Murad, the Assad regime calculates that by converting the current civil-war-like circumstances into a war with an external power, he will unite the population behind the regime and deny the opposition popular support. He added: “I think that Turkey is conscious of the Syrian scheme and it will not be dragged into such a quagmire”.
He stated that that the attempts of the deteriorated Syrian regime will not last long and “it will collapse very soon like a house of cards”.
