Iran to Send Commandos, Snipers to Iraq, Syria

Commander: Iran to Send Commandos, Snipers to Iraq, Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior army commander said Iran plans to deploy commandos and snipers in Iraq and Syria as military advisers.

“At some point we might decide to use our commandos and snipers as military advisers in Iraq and Syria,” Deputy Chief Liaison of the Army’s Ground Force General Ali Arasteh told reporters in Tehran on Wednesday.

He said the first group of commandos and snipers are being trained for the purpose and the country might decide to send them to Iraq and Syria in the near future.

Iran is providing Iraq and Syria with military advisory and humanitarian aid in their fight against terrorist groups.

Last week, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Major General Qassem Soleimani said Takfiri terrorism threatens all Muslims, and Iran has waged war on those terrorists that trade enslaved women and children.

“The fire of Takfir and Takfirism has engulfed in homes of our Sunni brothers. Those behind this are under the illusion that they can bring Shiism and the Islmaic Republic to their knees. More than anywhere elese, Takfiri groups have targetted the sanctity of humanity and the Sunni world,” General Soleimani said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran Sunday night.

General Soleimani then asked those behind the smear campaign to question Iran’s policy in its ongoing war on terror, “Is it adventurism if the Islamic Republic makes sacrifices to defend Muslims? Is it wrong for the Islamic Republic to battle a group that in just one region is buying and selling some 20,000 unfortunate enslaved young women? Is it wrong for the Islamic Republic to stand against the anti-Muslim current and stop the demolition of Mosques and Muslim holy sites?”

His remarks came after Iraqi Minister of Human Rights Mohammed Mahdi Ameen al-Bayati said the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group has sold more than 5,000 women and girls from Iraq’s Izadi Kurdish minority in their slave market.

    The natural progression is for Iran to lead in the region Not Saudi and Israel. to go against the natural order will never work and cost those who try everything for a very short live win if they can ever get it…

    Wish it was 5 or 6 divisions to sweep along the south side of the Turkey/Iraq/Syria border.
