Syria's Assad says he will not back down from fight

MINSK - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, in an interview with Belarusian TV Channel ONT aired on Thursday, said he will not back down from fighting his enemies.
He pledged to defend de-escalation zones, brokered by Russia, and crush, with the support of Iran and Hezbollah, those who will try to breach them.
Assad also told the TV channel that the de-escalation zones give chance for insurgents to hand over weapons, and for "reconciliation" with government.
