Syrian President Bashar Assad said Tuesday that the army will end its operations in the southern province of Daraa “very soon,” the Damascus-based Al Watan newspaper reported.

Assad, who was speaking to a group of communities from the northeastern provinces, said the events that transpired in Syria can happen in any country, according to Al Watan.

Syria sent troops on April 25 to quell demonstrations, inspired by popular revolts in Egypt and Tunisia that have spread across the country and posed the most serious challenge to the 11-year rule of Assad.
