The Syrian state newspaper, which serves as President Bashar Asasad's mouthpiece, said: "It has become obvious that the crisis in Syria is over and that the aftergrowth which is constantly being inflated is insignificant to the Syrians. Syrians have uncovered the plot and are now at the stage of counter attack in terms of function and reform."

While Western nations seek to increase sanctions on Assad's regime, Damascus is sending is message to the world: "Outside elements have realized that the game is over but they have difficulty acknowledging that they have been beaten with a single blow.
"That is why they have spent the past few days not only inflating events by fabricating them in a desperate manner."
Assad's journal noted that few are taking part in protests. "The Syrians know that the use of weapons is meant to cover for the minority taking part in the plot, and in demonstrations in general."
Referring to Syrian refugees who have fled to Turkey, the newspaper said that they were not forced out by Syrian soldiers. "This concept was evident in Jisr al-Shughour where gunmen intimated the residents into uprooting before the army entered in order to concoct the current refugee story.
"We must remember that Syria took in a million and a half refugees from Iraq without a fuss and without any tears shed for them. Is the Syrian refugee narrative part of the plot against Syria?"
The article concluded by declaring that the crisis was over and that foreign elements had failed. "The civil war spread by several Arab satellite stations is no more that words of lament of the defeated."
