January 14, 2019

TEHRAN – Hassan Firouzabadi, the former chief of the Iranian armed forces, said on Monday that Iran will keep its military advisors in Syria to help Damascus in the war against terrorism.

“Syria has called on Iran to send its military advisors to the country to confront the Takfiri terrorists,” General Firouzabadi said in an interview with IRNA.

“We support Syria as far as the Takfiri terrorists continue or spread their activities in the country and as far as the Damascus government requests,” he added.
