In a surprise visit to the Educational Centre for Fine Arts, Assad honored the families of students who were martyred during terrorist attacks.
“Today Syria as a whole is wounded. No one did not lose one of his relatives, a brother, father or a mother. However, all of this wouldn’t equal the loss of a son.
“Nevertheless, what happens to could not weaken us and the battle is a battle of will and steadfastness, and in as much as we remain strong, we could protect the others of the Homeland’s sons,” President al-Assad said.
Assad listened to the families’ requests and their suffering as they lost their sons, instructing the Education Ministry to meet the families’ demands.

“Our message to Syria’s enemies will be through continuing the way of those teachers and martyrs and achieve their goal; a strong Syria in the face of ignorance.”
