President al-Assad Inaugurates Memorial of Syrian Universities' Martyrs 

May 04, 2013

President Bashar al-Assad on Saturday participated with thousands of students in the inauguration of the memorial of Syrian Universities' Martyrs at Damascus University.

After the inauguration ceremony, President al-Assad talked with the families of the martyrs and a group of students, stressing that the  terrorist groups targeted university students and institutions because of their obscurantist ideology.

President al-Assad added that these groups which are fighting the Syrian people  and their regional and western supporters could not bear the statue of Abu al-Alaa al-Maarri or the Suspension Bridge of Der Ezzor, which is a cultural monument, so they will not bear the idea of Syrian youths who are armed with knowledge to confront their obscurantism and criminality.

President al-Assad asserted that Syria gave the alphabet to the world which enabled the whole humanity to start writing, and Syria gave science, literature and architecture to the whole world, pointing out that as it was, Syria will remain.

The students stressed that they will continue defending Syria through pursuing knowledge and protecting the infrastructure of their universities.

The inauguration ceremony started with observing a moment of silence for the souls of the martyrs, and then the national anthem was played.
