Iranian-Backed Liwa Fatemiyoun Held Live-Fire Drills In Southeastern Syria (Photos)

On March 29, Liwa Fatemiyoun, an Iranian-backed Afghan group, announced that its fighters had held live-fire drills in Syria.

The drills were held in a unspecified desert area in the southeastern region of Syria, likely near the town of al-Bukamal on the border with Iraq.

Liwa Fatemiyoun shared photos of the live-fire drills, which saw the group’s fighters firing heavy weapons. Furthermore, the fighters used night-vision and thermal sights to train on nigh-time combat operations.

Between 10,000 and 20,000 Afghan fighters are reportedly in service with Liwa Fatemiyoun, which operates in Aleppo, Homs and Deir Ezzor.

The Afghan group, which is funded, trained, and equipped by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, played a key role in the battles against ISIS in central Syria during 2016 and 2017. In 2019, the US sanctioned the group over its role in the Syrian war.

Currently, Liwa Fatemiyoun and other Iranian-backed forces are supporting Syrian government operations against ISIS cells in the central region and guarding the border line with Iraq.

The Objective

The Shiite wing of ISIS.

Ahson

but it kills the Al-Qaeda guppu turks and jihadi camel jockey no?….lol…kills em good in the SyRaq. We have worked a plan on creating a nucleus of Liwa Fatemyoun in Afghanistan and incorporating it into the ANA soon as a praetorian guard along the lines of the Iraqi PMU’s. So we can then kill the Wahabbi talibunny much more effectively. China and Russia back this plan too. Liwa Zeinabyoun will also be eventually brought on line on Iran’s eastern flanks to kill Pakistani jihadi over there. There will be no mercy from the troika.

Faisal al Al-Mahdi of Iraq

After the alliance treaty of China and Iran many things will start to change but i think the build up of the resistance will continue in Syria. Liwa Fatemiyoun will stay in Syria at least until the Americans leave. China has made several statements about getting involved in Syria, especially the last week. Leaks about the alliance is heavily military in nature with China opening bases in Kish and possibly Syria too and covering/assisting Iran to build nuclear weapons, 5th gen aircraft manufacture and space defense. China has made a huge change in their foreign policy tactics. This week everything changed. Iran just became untouchable and made sanctions irrelevant . The world will not be the same. The resistance is going on the offensive.

FlorianGeyer

Well said.

Eitherr

Zarif just rebuffed your statement bout Chinese military base on any Iranian soil. stop dreaming kid. Iran is a sovereign country why would they need Chinese Amy on their soil? this is zarif exact words on Instagram

“The document does not assign any region or even a location and does not create any exclusive rights in any field,” he added. “The deployment of military force is not foreseen in this document and there is no possibility for taking over a base.”

Zarif said, “This document is not against any third party or for interfering in the affairs of any country.”

Ahson

We have to be quiet about these things and not raise any suspicions. Obviously there will be a military dimension to the new relationship. The key reason China signed this deal with Iran is because GCC oil could get sanctioned to Beijing under Zionist pressure.

<>

Raising the question, what do Afghans have to do in Syria? most of them fight for the money, which is easier when you confront ISIS fighters here or there. But are they willing to die against an army like the IDF if it ever come to that? just like the mercenaries paid by KSA in Yemen, they would flee the battle if and when we come for them. So it’s all a good show in the photos, but nothing behind it really. Against a stronger opponent they would all die in a matter of weeks, as we have an air superiority. Just a cannonfodder.

Faisal al Al-Mahdi of Iraq

they are like PMU in Iraq, all ideological volunteers. They are screened at recruitment and highly trained but also tutored in ideology. it is not that easy to join. They are nothing like the KSA mercenaries, mind you KSA mercenaries dont always flee. early in Yemen war Ansar Allah annihilated a small black water army including killing their general. It shocked everyone, at the time, as these guys were ex special forces types. The other thing to remember is that Liwa Fatemiyoun are trained over years. they are equal to green berets or US Rangers in training and skills, not ordinary “grunts”.

<>

C’mon, don’t be a joker. They are nowhere close to any Western force capability, and I can say based on my training that if it ever come to that, they will die in big numbers just from our SOF units. The thing about you guys, is that you believe in your ability to remove us, well hope is a good thing. On the ground however, we will butcher you by the thousands and we won’t hesitate to fight you face to face, after all you come to threaten my country and my people. Then expect heavy resistance.

Robert Ferrin

Hmm now what would that training be perhaps as troll and dis-information artist,

<>

Try again.

Ashok Varma

Also a child with a lot of braggadocio and delusions. Every comment has proved to be a total lie or fallacy. Hasbara is now in desperate mode at the height of embarrassment as Axis of Resistance gets stronger by the day. Iran is now an official ally of China and that alone will strengthen it by a quantum leap in technology and manufacturing. The Zionists are more subterfuge and lies than capability as India found.

Leif Oskar Zetterstrøm

Ingenious warfare to support IS and Kurds. Even crusaders paid illiterate Islamists to kill other illiterate Islamists. One fine day, even Hezbollah will support Israel in the fight against poverty and misery in the Arab world. Education and better living conditions are the greatest enemy of the Islamic religion. After supporting the Palestinians and Kurds for over 40 years, it was Hasbara Hunter that made me think about the future of the Arab world. Atheist Jews are building and illiterate Islamists are destroying. No use going to a mosque and asking fantasy allah and dead mohammad for prosperity. The Palestinians in Israel are an example of having to work for their own prosperity.

Great Khan

Hahaha, WE thinks Zionist coward rat kismish hahaha

Ashok Varma

Israel is just a tiny non entity living off western charity and the fascade has worn off. Iran exposed the Zionist impotence in Syria and Lebanon specifically.

Ashok Varma

India has the largest Shia population after Iran, and they consider it the highest honour to protect the holy sites in Iraq and Syria. They are motivated by faith.

The Objective

A lot of them died in Syria, and many such militias died under Israeli fire. But it didn’t deter them going to Syria. Iran will not hesitate to keep sending these morons to die for a useless cause the Mullahs are pursuing in the middle east. They’ll keep throwing these forces at Israel and anyone who opposes them in the region and even beyond if they have the chance.
You are underestimating the harm these militias can cause Israeli soldiers. You seem to have forgotten that Israel lost hundred of soldiers in 2006 to these same kind of militias (Hezbollah).
Iran will try to bleed Israel without firing a single shot. Hezbollah can inflict a lot of damage without Iran sending even one of its soldiers to die in Lebanon. This is why the Iranian regime should be stopped and its network of regional militias dismantled. Otherwise the region will know no peace ever again.

<>

Don’t worry Objective, one thing about us is that we learn from our mistakes. The 2006 was a failure, because we didn’t use our ground forces when the war started, only in the last 2 weeks. If another wars breaks out, I predict it to be on two fronts. But we are well prepared for that, all you need to do is listen to Gantz and Kochavi, as they say it loud and clear. Lebanon will be destroyed, and Assad too if he lets those Afghans use his land for the attacks.

Ashok Varma

Silly boy and child fantasy. You are a very boastful little brat who has never seen a gun and post Vietnam era landa bazaar clothing photos. The real situation is that Nutter Yahoo is crawling to Arabs whose lands the Zionists are squatting on. It also shows how demographics will spell doom for the Zionist cancer in Palestine. You really need to grow up.

<>

Only cancer is in your head, ya ben sharmuta kus umuk. I hope you’ll get the chance to face me one time so I can prove to you my age.

The Objective

The point is not whether Israel wins against the militias or not. I know that Israel will defeat them, but what about their main sponsors? These militias will kill some Israeli soldiers and civilians, especially the Hezbos who are armed with thousands of rockets and missiles. Iran doesn’t care about the lives of these militias. It’s just using them as a tool to fight Israel and the Sunnis of the gulf region. Thus, Iran can fight its enemies without risking the live of a single Iranian soldier.
Trump’s approach to Iran was the best. That’s why the Iranians were so afraid of him. They feared Trump to the extent that they launched a massive disinformation campaign targeting American voters. They did all they could to make sure that Trump loses the election. Because the dreaded a second Trump tenure.
Trump made the Mullahs pay for the actions of their proxies. When Iran’s proxies started a tit-for-tat attack with the U.S in late 2019, it ended with a devastating drone attack the effect of which Iran is still feeling to this day. Thus, Trump hit directly at the heart of the regime. Something so painful that it made Khomeini and his generals weep in public. Not only that, it also humiliated the regime for its lack of proportionate retaliation despite issuing all kinds of threats. It also magnified the risk of a highly destructive war (something the regime tries to avoid at all cost). Since then, we’ve noticed a clear effort by Iran’s militias to avoid killing any more Americans. This is the only kind of cost that will stop Iran. Israel can kill 1 million militias, but Iran won’t stop creating more. The Iranian regime also refrains from sending higher ranking IRGC soldiers to Syria or Iraq to reduce the risks to personnel lives.
That’s why I think Israel won’t let Iran sit out any war with Hezbollah.

<>

Objective, you are very correct on that one. But we will hit Iran where it hurts even more – their nuclear program. Just read the article, it says it better than me my friend.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/gantz-israel-will-take-military-action-against-nuclear-iran-if-needed/

Garga

Come on, we both know that’s not true. You never learnt from your mistake nor ever will. Your regime doubles down on every single mistake.
You know that Gantz is a sellout and a liar, you felt it with your bones and you still fall for this guy?

Do you need me to give proof and examples that you never learn from your mistakes?

Put politics aside for a few days, so far you ruined your holidays.

<>

Garga, please do make a difference between us and my government. What bothers me, is that when Islamists (Sunni or Shia) attack Israeli civilians, we don’t respond accordingly. My only true purpose it to see Israelis living in security, which is why I also support the 2 states solution. However, there can never be any peace deals with organizations like Hamas or Hezbollah, they need to be eradicated so other sain Muslim leaders can rule their people and sign it with us. Removing Hezbollah would be the best thing for Lebanon, but it is Iran that will do whatever it can to keep the war going. Am I wrong?

P.S, it’s a very rainy day here today. My wife is watching her favourite series while I’m here having a chat. I do have to go buy some stuff before Shabat enters, is it still hoilday in Iran?

Garga

I do, always. Sometimes “you” means “you people”, if it’s not clear enough I’ll use the latter more often.

What are you talking about? Do you know they think the same way about your regime? That peace is not possible without eradication of Israeli regime?
Every few days your regime attacks somewhere and kills some civilians, what about them? I agree that 2 state solution is unlikely, but for entirely different reason and it’s your regime’s fault. You can’t expect people make peace with you when you kill them and steal their homes and lands. You put a small cat into a corner and hurt it and see how that small cat makes you regret it, these people are just as cornered as that hypothetical cat but smarter. Give their lands back and see the miracle.

The Israeli mentality that you seek your security in destruction of others is a wrong one, has always been but “you people” never learnt from that mistake. Take Fatimiun for example. So far they even didn’t look at you but you and “you people” are scared of them and openly talk about their annihilation. In that case don’t expect them to be kind to you.

Yes, it’s the last day, 13th of Farvardin. Traditionally all people spend this day outside, but the last 2 we remained indoors because of the Covid. Daniel, don’t waste time chat here. Go sit with your wife, hug her and pretend you are interested in what she likes in that awful TV series. If she was surprised by that move tell her that you missed her. Sit for 10-15 minutes then go do your own business and thank me later.

Before Shabat starts? Hahaha!!! What kind of secular Jew are you?! I told you there’s no such thing.

<>

Oh, it’s not about being secular. When Shabat enters, everything is closed so you can’t buy groceries anymore. So I’ll have to do it while there is still time.

Regarding our conflict, there are always 2 sides. We are not perfect so neither are they, but that is a 100 years war since the Brits took over Israel after WWI. We won’t solve it anytime soon.

And yeah, I think I’ll take a break today and spend some time together, routine is my worst enemy. i’ll come back later and see if there is anything interesting :)
Take care Garga.

Garga

Wow! You surprised me.
Accepting that one is not perfect is a virtue so rare in Israel. That’s promising.

Everywhere closed? Do you live in the midst of Hasidim? :D
By the way, I hope it’s you who cooks the dinner tonight. I can write you a few simple, quick recipes if you want.

Ashok Varma

Your canned CIA disinformation is wearing very thin. Your Zionist handlers boasted of “removing Iran from Syria ” a decade ago and the converse is now true. Hezbollah can literally destroy all Zionist hovels and that is why you yelp in helpless embarrassment and eunuch like braggadocio.

Ahson

This guy is a pakestani from UK……a muzlim brotherhood goon. I’ve run into many of them…….lol…..living a life of guilty conscience, now that wahabbi Islam showed them the booty on US and Israeli orders!……lol….they became basturds overnight no?…..lol

Ashok Varma

I know, their ISI is a slave of CIA which runs these internet Wahhabi trolls. Their agenda is one dimensional to plant disinformation against India, Russia and Iran. Albeit not very intelligent or credible.

Ahson

They along with the turks stand castrated today. They can’t make a move or else the CIA would regime change them both overnight. The US maintains near total financial control over both. Both are heavily indebted to the IMF/ WB and the ECB, more than their GDP’s. Sawdi is like a neanderthal colonized protectorate. This objective guy here is not dumb, he knows it and realizes it, but won’t admit it here out of shame. Fact is the entire sunni muzlim world put together can’t hold a candle to the power of Iran. It’s really a disgrace for them, their pathetic condition…literally under Neo-colonialism. What a joke no?

<>

Please let them try, we were very much ready for it back in September 2020. Want to write more BS?

igybundy

ah what do white Europeans have to do in the middle east? DOH!!!!

Free man

If you missed the previous chapters. Iron Zion is originally Iraqi.

Fog of War

what do Khazars have to do in the middle east?

Free man

Read the Bible, Abraham was an Iraqi.

Fog of War

Re-read the Bible. There was no Iraq back then.

Free man

Same place.

Fog of War

No, same geographic area. However, different culture, religion, psychology, mindset, etc. Not to mention the Sumerians arent related to Arabs. Totally different people.

Great Khan

ARAB Jew very confused hahaha,,,,,,hate himself,,,,,,ashkeNAZI,,,,racist no like Arap jew,,,,,like Negro’s,, ,,,hahaha he just child boy,,,,,talk big,,,,

Ahson

Great Khan, no shit! the eastern European shyster looks down upon the mizrahi. The Persian jew totally looks down upon the A-raab jew. Even Intermarriage is hard. Culturally very different no? specially these days in the racially charged atmosphere.

Garga

To answer your question the way you understand perfectly: What Poles have to do in Palestine?

The only difference is these Afghans are invited.

We slowly age and reach a point when we won’t be any help in a battle, but if it came to that, pray you never face them in the battlefield when your airforce is no more functioning.

Hezbollah’s 2006 kick is like a lover’s kiss in comparison with what they’ll do to IDF.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

<>

Hey Garga, always love reading your comments :)

I am not worried about them, to be honest. It all depends how far we are willing to go and use some weapon systems that can tear them to pieces. I don’t suppor tthat idea, I think they should go back home to their families and don’t die in a war that is not theirs. But if they do decide to fight us one day, then by all means my friend. It’s them who need to pray (will that even help?) that thermobaric munitions, cluster bombs and white phosphorus won’t fall on their heads. I have seen with my own eyes what it can do to a human being, I don’t wish it even for them.

Faisal al Al-Mahdi of Iraq

They are ideologically opposed to ISIS and Salafi Takfiri. its the reason many of them join up to fight the wahabi and zionist eg save the world at least in their minds

FlorianGeyer

“In 2019, the US sanctioned the ( courageous Afghan fighter’s, sic) group over its role in the Syrian war.”

So the criminal US terror regime sanctioned the Liwa Fatemiyoun units for being significantly involved in DEFEATING Isis in Syria :)

As you say, China has drawn a line in the sand with her 25 year Iran trade treaty , and the US has been checked again :)

The Objective

No, they are not fighting ISIS in Lebanon. Both are terrorists. If ISIS were to disappear today, these Shiite militias won’t disarm and will keep terrorizing the local population based on sectarian grounds. We know these kinds of Shiite forces. It’s not the first time they’ve emerged in history.
I certainly like the Azerbaijanis despite being Shiites. They are living proof that Sunnis and Shiites can coexist peacefully and even help one another. But the devils in Tehran are an entirely different breed from hell. These demonic Mullahs are rivaling America in spreading chaos, death destruction.

Fog of War

” these Shiite militias won’t disarm and will keep terrorizing the local population based on sectarian grounds. ”

Why arent they doing that in Iraq then ?

Ahson

Man who in their right mind will fight 200 million determined, independent and ideologically united Shia muslims? Fighting Iran was a non starter from day dot. That entire swath of land from Kabul westwards to Beirut is under Iranian sway. It would indeed be a miracle if anybody could challenge this Iranian hegemony. And we know the West is not serious doing anything about it, other than requesting an accommodation of sorts.

Great Khan

He live in Amerikkka, work for jew masters hahaha

The Objective

“Why arent they doing that in Iraq then”
Then you don’t know what’s going on in Iraq.

Fog of War

Thankfully you do.

The Objective

Which is why you should listen to me.

Great Khan

ISIS=cia+jewrat +English +NATO +Wahhabi pigs,,,,,haha Great Khan know these things. Now make alGAYda also,,,,,,hahaha

Great Khan

Hahaha you speak gabollloo and schmucksky.

Ahson

Reading his recent comments, I don’t believe this guy is muzlim…….he’s a false flagger and a hidden Zio-shill, sharing synergy and positive feed-back loop with the Zio’s here. Plenty of his types out there. Not a surprise though.

Great Khan

Iran brother STRONK! China brother now make Iran mucho kheili STRONK. Jew rat make less noise,,,,haha

Ashok Varma

Iranian presence and influence in the region is growing along with military professionalism. The recent pact with China will have profound impact as Indian RAW has clearly identified. China has never signed a total pact with any nation before. The implications are just beginning to dawn on the inept bankrupt Americans. The very fact that these militias are now using modern technologies and weapons is a testament to Iranian capabilities and funding.

Proud Hindu

Why don’t u a**hole lick Xis @$$ ?
