A senior military advisor to the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei underlined that Iran will continue to help the Syrian government and nation in their ongoing fight against terrorists.

"The counseling aid of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Syria's battle against terrorists will continue," Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said on Friday in a meeting with the family of the late Brigadier General Hossein Hamedani, a senior Islamic Revolution Guards Corps commander who was martyred in Syria while providing military advice to the Syrian Army, Fars News Agency reported.

Safavi reiterated that Syria is now regarded as an international warfront against the US and Israel.

"The US and the Zionists, along with some countries in the region such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, have formed a unified front to topple the legal government of [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad," Safavi said.

He stressed that enemies have planned to topple Assad and then target Lebanese Hezbollah, Iraq and finally Iran, as they believe that there is a strong bond between these powers.

In relevant remarks on Monday, IRGC Commander Mohammad Ali Jafari noted that Tehran will continue support for Syria, especially Assad, as he believes in resistance against the US and Israel.

"President Assad wholeheartedly believes in the resistance front and standing up against the world arrogant powers and the West. We do not know anyone else to replace him," he said.

Jafari underlined that Syria's resistance relies on Assad and said, "It is for the same reason that the enemy wants us to compromise over Assad and get everything else that we want in return."

The IRGC chief reiterated that no one can deny that the Syrian resistance depends on Assad.

Referring to Iran's support for the Syrian nation and government in their anti-terror campaign, he said, "We will utilize all our capabilities to provide military advice to the Syrian government."

On October 17, Jafari announced that 100,000 popular forces have been prepared in Syria to fight terrorist groups, highlighting Martyr Hamedani's role in mobilizing them.

"Today we are witnessing the organization of 100,000 Syrian people to deal with insecurities and Brigadier General Hamedani played an effective role in this regard," Jafari said in an interview with state television.
