LONDON — The Iranian opposition has reported the deployment of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to Syria to defend the regime of President Bashar Assad.
The Arab opposition to the Teheran regime said Iran has sent IRGC units to Syria to quell the revolt against Assad. The opposition said IRGC has been deployed in such Syrian cities as Banias, Damascus and Latakia.
“The Revolutionary Guards Corps currently provides the latest military training for the forces of Bashar Assad and helps them with tactics to bring the protests in Syrian cities under control,” Nasser Jaber, a spokesman for the Movement for Arab Liberation of Ahvaz, said.
