Iran Interferes in Syrian Affairs

Iran sends aid to Syria.

Iran has tried to end the tension in Syria by sending its advisers as well as weapons and surveillance equipment to its supporters there. The objective of all this is to destroy the anti-governmental forces which are active in Syria. Aid from Iran has led to incarceration of scores of Syrians who are not pro-government.

Iran’s Quds force is responsible for supporting the repressive Syrian government. The US has imposed sanctions against the Quds force and has warned of dire consequences if Iran continues aid to its only ally in the region.
