Syria’s Assad says war turning in his favor

“President Bashar al-Assad said on Sunday that Syria’s three-year conflict was at a ‘turning point’ due to his forces’ military gains against rebels, state media said. Assad’s allies have portrayed him as confident and in control and they expect him to run for and win a presidential election in July – a turnaround from last year when he looked on the verge of defeat as rebels advanced towards Damascus, struck in the heart of the capital and took control of key areas.”
