Assad gives backing to Russian airstrikes on Syrian militant groups

Russian airstrikes on territories controlled by rebels fighting against the Syrian government have been given the public backing of the country’s president, Bashar al-Assad.

Assad said in an interview broadcast on Iranian television that the attacks must succeed or the whole region could be destroyed. He said the Russian campaign has the potential to do so because it is backed by Iran and has international support, if not from western countries.
