No Cutback in Advisors in Syria

No Cutback in Advisors in Syria

A senior lawmaker dismissed allegations of a decline in the number of Iranian military advisors in Syria, saying the claims are aimed at undermining the anti-Islamic State campaign in the Arab country.  Alaeddin Boroujerdi, who chairs the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said on Thursday a “psychological war” was initiated as soon as Iran, Russia, Syria and Iraq joined hands to fight terrorism, Press TV reported. He said this psychological war stems from the failure of the US and its allies in their so-called fight on terrorism while “the four-nation alliance [of Iran, Russia, Syria and Iraq] has managed to achieve massive and effective victories in a short period of time.”
Iran has sent military advisors to Syria to provide assistance to the Arab country in the fight against the terrorists operating there.
Russia has also been conducting airstrikes against terrorist positions in Syria since September 30, upon a request from Damascus.
