NHK - Assad Syria's fate hinges on battle with rebels

Syria's President Bashar al-Assad has stressed his intention to defeat anti-government forces. He says his government's battle against the rebels will determine Syria's fate. Assad issued the statement in a military magazine published on Wednesday, the Syrian armed forces' founding day. Assad said the battle the military is fighting is against terrorists driven by a conspiracy. Assad has not spoken in public since the bombing in Damascus on July 18th that killed senior government officials, including the defense minister. The leader's whereabouts remains unknown. In the northern city of Aleppo, fierce fighting between the government and opposition forces continues. UN observers in Syria say Assad's forces are mobilizing aircraft to attack opposition forces, which now possess tanks and heavy weapons. Internet video footage shows that the rebel Free Syrian Army in Aleppo has summarily executed members of Shabbih, a pro-Assad militia. Aug. 2, 2012
