Iranian military advisers will continue operating in Syria to help the country to defeat terrorists and to counter the Israeli attempt to gain domiance in the region, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the Iranian parliament speaker’s special adviser on international affairs, says.
“The Zionist regime tries to gain dominance over Syria after Daesh, but resistance forces and military advisers from the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue their presence alongside Syria to counter terrorism, ” Amir-Abdollahian said during a meeting with Palestinian Ambassador to Tehran Salah al-Zawawi.
“The Syrian people will not allow the country to be turned into the hotbed of Zionist terrorists once again.”
Over the past few years, Israel has frequently attacked targets inside Syria stating that this is a part of efforts to limit the Iranian influence in the country. Israeli top officials have also vowed that Tel Aviv will do anything needed to prevent Iran from establishing military bases in Syria. They also demanded Iranian forces to withdraw from the country; the move that Teheran rejects.
