Air Defense Consultation Reaffirmed to Syria

Air Defense Consultation Reaffirmed to Syria

A military commander reaffirmed on Sunday that Iran will spare no effort to provide Syria with advisory assistance in the air defense field at the request of the Damascus government. Speaking to Tasnim News Agency, Lieutenant General Farzad Esmaeili stressed that if asked by the Syrian government, Iran will vigorously offer advisory help to Syrian forces in the air defense field, making a reference to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei’s assertion that Tehran’s support for the allies comes in the form of advisory help. As regards speculations about Saudi Arabia’s decision to deploy ground troops to Syria, the commander argued that any presence in Syria without coordinating with the Damascus government will be doomed. Iran, a close ally of Syria, has been supporting the Syrian government in the fight against terrorists.
Tehran has already made it clear that its assistance to Syria is confined to consultation and advisory help. Syria has been mired in a civil war since 2011, with government forces fighting an assortment of militants, including the self-styled Islamic State militant group.
