Iran plans to send special forces and snipers to Syria


“At some point we will be ready to send our special forces and snipers as military advisers to Iraq and Syria,” the general told Fars news agency.

He noted that "the first group of special forces soldiers and snipers are already undergoing training for this purpose, and the Islamic Republic may decide to send them to Iraq and Syria in the near future."

Fars recalls that Iran provides the Iraqi and Syrian authorities "military advisory and humanitarian assistance in their fight against terrorist groups."

The Western media, in turn, reported, citing sources, about Tehran’s discontent with the withdrawal of the main forces of the Russian group from Syria. Such a move, according to the Iranian leadership, "will significantly weaken the position of the President of the Syrian Republic, Bashar al-Assad."

    All is correct. We need to learn to rake the heat with the wrong hands. I need to take care of the Russian soldier; he told me more expensively Generalissimo Suvorov. And VKV, if necessary, can be strengthened in two to three days.

              And the storm season is also a factor to temporarily reduce the number of aircraft

                  No! I did not mean it. It's just that even the closest allies always debate. who will substitute first or who will invest how much, etc. This is quite normal.

                  Anyway. doubtful or not - but Iran is an ally. Almost a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) - but of course they won’t allow him to be so close - although Iran was sure that he would not mind securing the United States by membership in the CSTO.
                  Iran has become a "strategic partner" for Kazakhstan as well. And with the Belarusian Batko Ahmadinejad stood next to the guard of honor at the body of the legendary Hugo Chavez. T e Iran he is "our" - which, for example, cannot be said about the same Serbs or Bulgarians and other "Orthodox brothers"

                  It must be admitted that Russia protects Iran in Syria - but at the same time uses Iran as an advanced "penal battalion" - because Iranians are fighting and dying on the ground.

                  In any case, we are all in the same boat with Iran - and we will have to cover it and protect and supply it, if God forbid what

        And why should we be indignant, our entire large infrastructure was destroyed, right now the most effective weapon on that theater is a sniper from a great distance, so let everyone make his contribution. Do not chase after every terrorist from TOW to Su35.

      There, they will train their army, and then they will send them to help the Hussites, and through them they will begin the collapse of Saudi Arabia. Trained and fired on in battle, Iranian soldiers can become excellent instructors for the Hussites, then the loss of the Saudis will be enormous.

          Iran, from the very beginning of the terrorist aggression against Syria, in the midst of the conflict, it was from Iran that oil products for Syrian tanks and cars came from Iran. Every day, planes fly to the airports of this country in Iran, thousands of Shiite volunteers from Afghanistan, Pakistani Iraqis trained, and the Iranians themselves constantly go there. .
          Volunteers Afghans from the Fatimiyun brigade trained in Iran, numbering 10-12 thousand people fighting in Syria.

    Snipers, this is serious. I remember the film "Sniper, Weapon of Retaliation", where a dozen snipers, in Stalingrad, thwarted the offensive of an infantry battalion, knocking out officers and machine gunners. In Syria, where grenade launchers are very annoying, snipers could fix this situevina, along the way, significantly reducing the number of bandits.

      The American army has all the necessary resources and capabilities to counter such groups as Jabhat al-Nusra or the Islamic State (also known as IS, ISIS and Daesh, both banned in Russia). As for the war against a stronger enemy, doubts arise.
      This was stated by Chief of Staff of the American Ground Forces, Mark Milli, reports Defense News. According to him, the idea of ​​the possible need to wage an armed struggle against countries such as Russia, North Korea, China or Iran, is of great concern to the Pentagon.
      "The US Army is now ready to fight IS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra Front and any other terrorist group. When we talk about risks, we mean a large-scale war with one or two countries - China, Russia, Iran or North Korea, "said General Mark Milli.

    Good post. The army of Iran is a very formidable force. At present, after an exhibition in Iran, our country concludes contracts for the supply of equipment for Iranian airfields.
    And regarding snipers, it has been known since the time of the Second World War that the sniper squad stopped the attack of the Nazi battalion. Therefore, this group of fighters will find a decent job. The main thing is that not a single bearded fascist should remain alive. I have the honor.

    It amazes me how cheers patriots love to justify all the actions of our Sun! Whatever Putin does, he is always right, and by the okoy ways, at one fine moment, we will wake up in a developed and beautiful country! but time passes, and things are still there. When Putin was elected in 2012, I promised that I remember by 2020 to achieve new standards of life for the country, to practically equal the developed countries, and where are these promises now? Now in the case of the withdrawal of troops. Why was it necessary to withdraw the troops right now and call it a conclusion? we have no victory in Syria! Isil is a real threat to us and our Caucasus! What was the operation for? for PR? igil blew our plane all forgotten already? more than 200 of the hundreds of dead! Putin recalled dead soldiers today, but forgot to mention the plane! The main goal should be considered the destruction of the needles, or at least taking the crayfish into the environment! And how do we behave with allies? when the operation began, we formed our own, albeit not quite formal, coalition: Russia, the SAR, Iran and Iraq! For some reason, everyone forgets about the important role of Iran in this turning point, it was precisely these or those forces that played a decisive role in advancements under Aleppo! But no one notices this! Solntselikiy pu single-handedly made a decision (as emphasized in the news) about the withdrawal by simply informing the ATS. And now, contented in the Kremlin, he tells how Russia defeated everyone there! Forgetting the allies! Do you know what the power of the USA is? Although often and formally, the United States respects its allies, always emphasizes that this or that action is coordinated with the allies! And we took and brought out the VKS and as if there was no alliance with Iraq and Iran, and as if someone else had to fight with the igil now it’s not our business now, poo did his PR and now everything doesn’t need anything else. Do you think Putin is some kind of genius, but he is not a genius, this is a man who needs power and a game of power, he does not care about Ishil and Iran’s ally and the rest. He acts in his own interests and his interest has apparently changed.
