IRAN (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Former head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard’s Quds Force Restoration Facility, Brigadier General Hassan Plarek, said the resignation and departure of Syrian regime leader Bashar al-Assad had been prevented by the former forces commander In question, Qasem Soleimani.
“Qasem Soleimani fought the Syrian problem alone and saved Syria. Even Bashar al-Assad would abandon his country by becoming a refugee. He (Soleimani) said ‘The only way to victory is resistance. With God’s permission we will be successful ‘, resisted and became successful, “Plarek said in a statement to the Persian News Agency.
Gul Ali Babayi, another commander of the Revolutionary Guard, quoted in his book Fish Message the words of Hossein Hamedani, a commander who was killed in clashes in Syria:
“That night was a complex situation. Assad thought it was over. He was thinking of seeking asylum in a country like Russia.”
The US earlier this January killed Iranian top general Qasem Soleimani in an air strike at Baghdad airport. Iran retaliated by firing dozens of ballistic missiles at Iraqi bases containing US troops.
