Top General Meets Syria's Assad

Iran's military chief met Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Thursday during a visit to Damascus to discuss a joint military strategy, Syria's state news agency reported. Major General Mohammad Baqeri said Iran was determined to continue supporting the Syrian government and people "until security and safety are restored to them" and would help with reconstruction, SANA was cited as reporting by Reuters. Israel has voiced concern over Tehran's activities in Syria, where Iranian military advisors and Iran-backed militias, including Lebanon's Hezbollah, have played a critical role helping Assad in the six-year fight against militancy and terrorism. On Tuesday, Baqeri warned Israel against breaching Syrian airspace and territory and pledged to increase cooperation with Syria's military to counter both Israel and militants. Israel's air force said it has struck arms convoys of the Syrian military and Hezbollah nearly 100 times during the war. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed that Iran was strengthening its foothold in Syria and that Israel would "do whatever it takes" to protect its security. In the meeting with Baqeri, Assad said the Iranian people and armed forces were a key partner in achieving victories against terrorism in Syria.
