Kuwait emir reappoints nephew as pm
HUNTAKH, Syria – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad took control of the northern Syrian town of Hit in the northern Homs countryside, Syria state news agency SANA reported on Friday.
The governorate of Homs i더킹카지노s in the east of the country and is controlled by Assad, but al-Assad has never been there, or had any control over the whole territory, a security source said on Friday.
He has never been a leader of th바카라e pro-government Free Syrian Army, although the country’s armed wing, the National Defense Forces (NDF), has been present there.
The new regime takes over the Syrian city after Assad’s loyalist and former foreign affairs minister, General Riad al-Asaad, was forced to leave for Kuwait. His replacement, Saeed al-Golani, was not appointed by Assad.
In July, U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said after talks in Moscow that Assad had sent about 20,000 troops and weapons to the country.
Hate crimes, including the killing of Muslims by fellow citizens, and crimes against religious minorities, including killing apronxand burning of churches, continue, he added.
But al-Asaad on Friday said he met Assad to promote a reconciliation process between the rival Syrian opposition factions.
