Qodsna Managing Director, Mehdi Shakibayi says Iran, Iraq and Syria are facing a common terror fed by the Zionist regime of Israel, adding it was natural for the three states to develop common policies to counter the terrorism.
The Qodsna authority was speaking with the Arabic desk of Russia Today.
He was alluding to the announcement of the establishment of a brigade for the liberation of the Israeli occupied heights that was made in Tehran by the spokesman for the Iraqi popular army, Nojaba.
The Qodsna managing director said one must not expect the spokesman to announce the issue in a European capital.
Shakibayi was asked “would Iran use the anti-Israeli fight as an ‘excuse’ for remaining in Syria as it used the anti-ISIS fight as ‘excuse’ for entering the country”.
He rejected the idea of ‘excuse,’ saying both ISIS and Israel were parts of a cancer in the region that must be countered.
The Qosdna CEO also said Iran entered Syria at the invitation of the Syrian government with a view to counter a source of terror tat has even threatened the Islamic republic.
He added that Iran pursues as a principle policy to help any group that fights Israel, adding if Syria would ask for Iran’s assistance for the liberation of the occupied Giolan Heights, it would certainly receives Iran’s backing.
