Robert Fisk, the Independent’s long-standing Middle East correspondent, discusses during an interview on ABC’s (Australia) Lateline, his view of the current situation in Syria after returning from a trip there.
He states that the Syrian Army has become the sole strongest institution in Syria, where many soldiers display strong sense of patriotism. He also confirms that the so-called «Free Syrian Army» (FSA) does not exist.
He discusses the issue of the destruction of Syria’s ancient Christian community, including a recent attack by al-Qaeda’s Jabhat al-Nusra on an Armenian church in Deir Ezzor that housed the archives of the Armenian genocide and remains of people who perished during that event.
