Syrian deputy FM: next target could be north or south - Mayadeen

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria’s deputy foreign minister said on Wednesday that the army could head north or south after crushing militants in a string of enclaves around the capital, according to al-Mayadeen TV.

“After ending the direct terrorist danger to Damascus, the door is open to heading north or south,” the pro-Syrian government channel cited Faisal Mekdad as saying.
