Speaking to the journalists at the exhibition’s opening, Deputy Defense Minister Maj. Gen. Mahmoud Shawa said that the meanings embodied in October Liberation War and the victories currently achieved by the Syrian army currently are “grand”.

“There was the October Liberation War and our enemy, the Israeli occupation entity- was the main target, who continues to be the real compass in the fight against terrorism,” said Maj. Gen. Shawa, adding that “terrorism has been renewed and the victories of our army continue successively from one October to another.”
