Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said that enemies have been trying to omit Syria from the resistance front against the Zionist entity. He stressed that those enemies would not succeed, noting that arming militants in Syria had bad implications in the region.
Vahidi said that the enemies have been trying to tilt the balance to their favor by omitting Syria from the resistance front but they would not succeed.
“The enemy seeks to create a new balance of power between the Zionist regime (Israel) and other Islamic countries in the region by forcing Syria out of the (anti-Israeli) resistance front. However, this will not come about.”
He stated that what was portrayed as opposition in Syria consisted of a few foreign armed groups that did not allow the Syrian government to meet the demands of the country’s people.
“If foreign forces that have an irregular presence in this country enter the scene regularly, a major crisis will engulf the region,” Vahidi said on Saturday, according to State TV.
“The losers of such a crisis will be the Westerners and pro-Zionist countries,” he stressed.
The DM warned that “the region will face a major crisis if foreign forces, currently (covertly) present in Syria, enter the scene” and intervene militarily.
“It is ugly that countries… have flooded Syria with arms, equipping terrorist groups. It will have very bad implications in the region,” Vahidi said further.
