Afghans Praised for Fighting IS in Syria

Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps' Naval Force Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi hailed Afghan volunteer forces that joined the Syrian Army in the war against the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group. "Today, in light of the resistance shown by the brave young people and fighters, including the dear Afghan brothers, the filthy and criminal conspiracy of the arrogant powers and the Zionist front manifested in the form of the criminal IS group has failed," Fadavi said in Mashhad on Tuesday, in a meeting with families of Afghan resistance forces participating in anti-terror operations in Syria under the name of Fatemiyoun Brigade, Fars News Agency reported. The Fatemiyoun Brigade is an Afghan Shia group formed in 2014 to fight against the terrorists in Syria. The division is mainly comprised of the fighters of Shia group Muhammad Army, which was active during the 1979-89 Soviet-Afghan War and later against the Taliban.
