NCRI – Iran’s regime has released a new promotional video clip aimed at recruiting Afghan nationals to join the war in Syria in support of Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
The six-minute clip has been produced and broadcast by the state television channel Ofogh TV (www.ofoghtv.ir). Among the state media agencies that have shown and distributed the clip is the Fars news agency, affiliated to the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
It has been dedicated to the “unsung heroes of the earth, the renowned of the skies, and the combatants of the Fatemiyoun Divison,” and includes scenes of a man from Afghanistan glossing over photos of Afghans who have died in the Syrian conflict. He is encouraged by a young boy and girl into going to the war front.
He then changes into army uniform in front of a picture of the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and wears the Fatemiyoun militia emblem on his arm and joins the war. Throughout the clip, another man sings a propaganda song with Afghan lyrics as part of the recruitment drive to encourage Afghans to take part in the war.
The lyrics say in part: “To the raging enemy we are the sharp sword. We are from the Islamic nation and the country of Afghanistan. We are the mentors of conviction and we are the adherents of the Quran. We are the heirs to the blood, the heirs to the martyrs. We will fill the world with the resonance of our fight, of our steadfastness and firmness, and of our will and determination.”
A headband is seen being placed upon the forehead of a teenage recruit, reading “Defender of the Holy Shrine.” Iran’s regime describes its involvement in the Syrian war as an attempt to “defend the sacred shrines.” This is while most of the Iranian regime’s casualties are in the Aleppo region which is almost 300 kilometers away from the holy Shiite shrines near Damascus.
