The Syrian Army claimed on Tuesday that the US and Saudi Arabia are allowing Daesh terrorists passage into Syria from Mosul.

According to the army's statement released via state media, the US-led coalition plans to entail securing roads and safe passages into Syria to allow the terrorists consolidate their presence and create "new battleground realities" in eastern Syria.

"Any attempt to cross the border is an attack on the sovereignty of Syria… and would be dealt with all forces available," the  statement said.
