NCRI – During last Friday prayer in Tehran, cleric Kazem Sediqi said: “The government has set its defense lines in Syria and Lebanon.”
“One day our battle field was the city of Abadan (in southwestern Iran), but now you can see that it’s in Syria and Lebanon,” Sediqi said on Friday.
Last month, the Iranian regime’s deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs re-enforced the regime’s total support for Syria’s dictator Bashar al-Assad as a key member of the ‘resistance front’.
Hossein Amir-Abdullahian said: “The situation in Syria has entered a new phase and this period will be very decisive. For our axis, Syria is an important and active member in the resistance front, the state-run Fars news agency reported on May 31.
“That is why the Islamic Republic has seriously supported the Syrian government, and this support will continue and there has not been and will not be any changes in the position of Tehran in supporting Syria, and Hezbollah is also following this strategy and guideline.”
