Iran Sends Top Commander to Help Co-ordinate Violent Crackdown
IRANIAN COMMANDER ARRIVES IN SYRIA TO HELP ASSAD
A top commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force has arrived in Syria to help Assad manage the uprising, a member of the National Syrian Council has claimed.
Kassam Salimani has reportedly taken up a spot in the Syrian war room, allegedly including Assad himself, which manages army manoeuvres against opposition forces.
The Quds Force specialises in unconventional warfare on foreign soil – indicating what kind of battle Assad wants to bring to his tormentors, haaretz.com said.
The 15,000 elite soldiers that make up the force are in charge of training and funding Hezbollah.
