Syrian Ambassador to the US Imad Moustapha said Tuesday that the decision by President Bashar Assad to call on his army to increase its readiness was "natural." "We need to defend ourselves from the Israeli aggression close to our border," said Moustapha, adding that if Americans could see what was happening on the ground, "they would understand who are the real terrorists."
