Damascus, SANA_ As he arrived at the Umayyad Square in Damascus on Friday, Cyclist Alaa Al-Ra’e achieved his three-day ” Journey of Triumph ” coming from Tartus to Lattakia, Hama and Homs, passing through Damascus countryside and then to Damascus.

Will and determination accompanied al-Ra’e during his journey despite the cold weather.

” I made this trip in gratitude to the martyrs of Syrian Arab Army and in recognition of their great sacrifices and to send a message to entire world that Syria is the land of love and peace, not as showed by the misleading media outlets,” cyclist al-Ra’e told SANA reporter.

He thanked Russia for its support to Syria in its anti-terrorism war, hoping his next trip on his bicycle would be to Russia.
