Sadrist Movement’s leader Muqtada al-Sadr urged on Saturday Syrian regime president Bashar al-Assad to resign if he wants to save Syria from terrorism.
Bashar al-Assad has to resign and hand over the leadership of Syria to competent leaders who can fight terrorism, al-Sadr said in a press statement.
Al-Sadr also criticized Trump’s decision to strike Syria, describing this move as “reckless” and urged the US president to oust the US from the Syrian conflict so it doesn’t turn out to be a new Vietnam.
The Sadrist leader stressed that the US strike may have given ISIS the green light to expand to other countries.
Al-Sadr also noted that the US intervention in Syria won’t help solve the situation. He added that US couldn’t help Iraq in 2003 invasion.
Russia and other factions fighting in Syria must withdraw from the war-torn country to enable the Syrian people to rebuild their country.
