Iran’s Regime Pays Terrorist Quds Force Mercenaries Five Times More Than Iranian Nurses
The mullahs’ regime claims that it is unable to provide medicine and medical facilities to the Iranian people due to cash shortage caused by international sanctions.
But over the past three months, as coronavirus has spread across Iran and killed many people, the regime continues to send cash to pay its foreign mercenaries in Syria and Lebanon in order to continue its terrorism and war in the region.
The monthly salary of IRGC mercenaries in Syria averages about $1,000 a month.
According to Ministry of Health officials, the average salary of nurses in Iran is $200 a month.
