damascus - Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad does not care about the attacks that three western countries have done on his country. He stays on the same course, Russian parliamentarians who were visiting Damascus and Assad reported this weekend. Assad was in a good mood and praised the Russian anti-aircraft, with which his army would have brought down the most rockets.
The western rocket attacks were, according to Washington, Paris and London, a retaliation for an attack with poison gas on April 7 in the Syrian Douma. Syrian government troops would have bombarded that stronghold Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) with poison, while a proper arrangement was made about the retreat of the battle group and about the release of thousands of prisoners from Jaish al-Islam.
