Evidence of Iran’s influence is increasing in Syria. An Iranian channel aired a documentary film shot inside areas controlled by the Assad regime. In an unprecedented move, the film shows a number of multinational fighters who the film say their only task is to protect shrines and religious sites.
The film shows how Iranian officers have taken overall command of the Syrian army and its facilities and provides new evidence of their involvement in the genocide being carried out by the Assad regime against the Syrian people. It also provides proof on the transformation of the so-called Syrian Arab Army to a number of militias commanded by the Iranian regime.
President Khoja said earlier that “as the Syrian Revolution has shifted away from being a revolution against tyranny and injustice to a battle for liberating Syria from the Iranian occupation after Assad handed over Syria to Iran and after Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Qods Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard took on commanding the regime’s military operations.
Khoja added that “the Free Syrian Army does not only fight the Assad regime, but also the Iranian regime, emphasizing that Assad is just an Iranian puppet who serves its interests. He noted that the time would come when Iran will eventually abandon Assad just as it did with Al-Maliki in Iraq.”
The Syrian Coalition calls on the UN Security Council to pass a resolution under Chapter VII demanding that the Iranian regime withdraws it forces out of Syria.
“The Syrian people are not now defending Syria only, but also the dignity of the whole Arab nation against the Iranian invaders. We are fighting today on three fronts; against ISIS, the Assad regime and the Iranian occupation, which requires unification of the efforts to achieve victory.” (Source: Syrian Coalition )
