Syrian President Bashar Assad accused Israel of "directly supporting terrorist groups" in Syria, in an interview with Argentinian newspaper Clarin, which was shared with the Observer on Saturday.

"Israel is directly supporting the terrorist groups in two ways, firstly it gives them logistical support and it also tells them what sites to attack and how to attack them," he said. "For example, they attacked a radar station that is part of our anti-aircraft defenses, which can detect any plane coming from overseas, especially from Israel."
