CAIRO, September 5. (Itar-Tass). – Iran “would be supporting Syria till the end” in case of possible military aggression from a coalition lead by the US, as stated by General Qasem Soleimani, commander of Qods Force, Iranian elite special detachment forming part of Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution.
“The US is not intending to defend human rights in Syria,” he said quoted by Iran’s Fars news agency. “They aim at destroying resistance power (against Israel).”
The General noted that Washington uses not only political leverage, but special tactics including sending of Al-Qaeda militants to Syria, in order to overthrow President Bashar Assad. Soleimani expressed confidence that “the last excuse invented by the White House to justify the attack on Syria will not lead to a result desired by the US”. The Iranian officer said that “95% of Syrian opposition militants are foreigners, and the rest is represented by military absentees from the Syrian army and by local Islamists”.
However, Iran’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan excluded the possibility of Iranian army’s direct participation in the possible military conflict in Syria. “Syria has its own air defense system,” he said.
Wednesday, September 4, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani stated that any aggression against Syria “will not only negatively impact the situation in the region, but will also affect US allies in the Middle East”. “Proceeding from its religious and humanitarian commitments Iran will work on helping the Syrian nation in case any problem emerges,” he stressed.
