Iran’s Revolutionary Guard commands Syrian War In Violation of UNSC Resolutions


Iran Focus

London, 6 Dec – On December 5, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) wrote an article about the clear violations of UNSC resolutions by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) presence and the transfer of weapons to Syria.

The NCRI has published photos of the main command center and barracks in Aleppo. “Fort Behuth” is located 30 kilometers southeast of the city and only 5 kilometers south of the city of al-Safire.

Iran named the site, “Fort Hazrat Roqiye”. It is under the command of Seyed Javad Ghafari, IRGC Brigadier General commanding all IRGC forcers in Aleppo.

Gaining experience in the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s, Ghafari has commanded the Aleppo military campaign and Syria’s northern front for the past three years. He was recently appointed field commander of all IRGC forces in Syria.

He joined IRGC Quds Force commander Qassem Suleimani in a meeting with Bashar Assad, a few months ago, and was praised by the Syrian dictator. He also joined Suleimani to meet with Lebanese Hezbollah leader Hassan Nassrollah.

Inside the base, there are two command centers. One is associated to the IRGC command structure, while the second center is home to senior Hezbollah commanders alongside the IRGC. Military operations are blueprinted here. This base also houses a number of Syrian army officers and commanders, who coordinate operations with the IRGC. The base is one of the permanent centers of the IRGC’s so-called “Saberin”, the commando battalions, equipped with armored personnel carriers and 107mm mini-Katiusha rockets.

Each of the groups linked to the IRGC have their own specific section in the base. Brigadier Commander Amirpour is the commander of the Fatemiyoun, Afghan mercenaries, in Fort Behuth. These forces are stationed 500 meters from the IRGC.

One of the most important centers of chemical, ammunition and missile production for the Assad regime’s weapons of mass destruction is Fort Behuth, located near the Jabul salt lake. Located close to a salt mine, this base facilitates the provision of raw material needed for chemical weapons. The Assad army has code-named the site as 350.

Fort Behuth and other centers located south of al-Safire, comprise the IRGC’s missile production site. “Syria has reached the point that in the past few years Iran has launched missile production units in Aleppo,” said General Mohammad Bagheri, of the joint chiefs of staff of Iran’s armed forces on November 10.

Rahim Safavi, former IRGC commander and current military advisor to Ali Khamenei, said in an interview with Iran’s state TV on September 22, that the main role in this war is on the shoulders of the ground forces, consisting of the IRGC, terrorist Quds Force foot-soldiers, and the Syrian army. He admitted that the IRGC and its mercenaries are coordinating the vicious bombings conducted in Aleppo.

Iranian Resistance has repeatedly warned that the regime and the IRGC are the main force behind the massacre of the Syrian people. The money that rightfully belongs to the Iranian people fuels the Syrian war.

Last week the Iranian Resistance made public the names of 39 IRGC brigadier generals and 30 IRGC colonels killed in the Syria war indicating the extent of involvement in the Syrian carnage.

Deploying armed forces and sending weapons to Syria is a flagrant violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions and international covenants by the Iranian regime. The first step in resolving this crisis is to evict the regime, and the IRGC from Syria, before peace can return to the region and Daesh (ISIS/ISIL) can be uprooted.
