In the interview with RT, the Russian state's worldwide broadcaster, Assad raised the prospect of conflict with USA forces if they do not leave Syria.

"If not, we're going to resort to. liberating those areas by force", he said, adding "the Americans should leave, somehow they're going to leave".

He also claimed that direct conflict between Russian military and USA forces had been "close" in Syria, and that it had only been avoided thanks to Putin's leadership. (As if we didn't have enough on our plates already.) Assad is being backed by both the Russians and Iran.

Assad admitted that there are Iranian officials "working with the Syrian army and offering help". Assad, apparently referring to the May 10 attack, by Israel said "we had tens of Syrian martyrs and wounded soldiers, not a single Iranian" casualty.
