Hassoun: Iranian Militias to Blame for Coronavirus Spread in Syria
Member of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Colonel Fateh Hassoun, said that the Iranian militias are mainly to blame for the spread of the coronavirus in Syria. He emphasized that Iran is intentionally spreading the deadly virus in Syria, trying in various ways to spread it to all areas across Syria, including the liberated areas.
Hassoun pointed out that Iran is sending people carrying the coronavirus to die in battles in Syria rather than die in hospitals. He said that all is part of Iran policy’s aimed at destroying Syria and weaken so that it continues to impose its hegemony on the country.
Hassoun pointed out that information coming from various regions and fronts confirms the presence of cases of the virus among the ranks of the Iranian militias, especially in the town of Albukamal in rural Deir Ezzor, Aleppo and Damascus. He added that those carrying the virus are mingling with civilians as usual, which caused the outbreak of the pandemic.
He indicated that the military units knew of Russian instructions to the Russian forces to stay away from Iranian militias for fear of catching the virus.
