Syrian President Bashar Assad Sunday dismissed British airstrikes in Syria against Daesh (ISIS) as illegal and doomed to fail, a day after French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said his departure was no longer necessary before any political transition in the war-torn country.Assad said in an interview with the Sunday Times newspaper that British airstrikes on Daesh would fail to defeat the militant group, mocking Prime Minister David Cameron's strategy in the region. Assad has said the only airstrikes that have worked against Daesh are those carried out by Russia, which is cooperating with Syrian government forces.Assad ridiculed Cameron's assertion that there are as many as 70,000 Western-backed opposition fighters in Syria who would open a political solution to the civil war and could retake territory from militants weakened by the airstrikes.
