    BEIRUT - Syrian President Bashar al Assad has approved a new budget law worth approximately 9 billion dollars, Syrian government news agency Sana reports. The law gives priority to ''development projects'' in areas conquered over the past few months by loyalist forces from several opposition groups and Qaedist and jihadist militias, according to Sana. Finance Minister Mamun Hamdan was quoted by pro-government daily al Watan as saying that the investments in the new budget law will be funded, for approximately one billion dollars ''in freed areas'', referring to zones that were re-taken by government forces, backed by Iran and Russia, over the last few months.
