Iranian Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan warned of exploiting the cessation of hostilities in Syria for restructuring the terrorist organizations.

Dehqan said in a statement on Tuesday that while the truce in Syria is looked at by everyone as being positive, still what raises concern is to have the terrorist organizations’ supporters exploit this opportunity to restructure these organizations and provide them with military equipment so that they can intensify their hostilities.

Dehqan called on all sides to exert efforts to make the cessation of hostilities in Syria stable and to ensure delivering humanitarian aid to the civilians besieged by the terrorist organizations, stressing the importance of creating the favorable conditions for reaching a political solution for the crisis in Syria.

He added that there must be a serious international will for eliminating terrorism in Syria completely.
