Rebellion will be crushed: Syrian defense minister

Syria`s defense minister says the rebellion against President Bashar Assad`s regime will be crushed.



Beirut: Syria`s defense minister says the rebellion against President Bashar Assad`s regime will be crushed.

Gen Fahd Jassem al-Freij told state-run Syrian TV on Saturday that violence in the country will end soon, as troops are determined to bring back stability.

Al-Freij rarely makes public statements. His remarks came as Syrian troops launched a major offensive to retake rebel-held areas in the northern city of Aleppo and the central city of Homs.

In comments marking the anniversary of the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, al-Freij said the government is ready to give amnesty to rebels who "repent."
