  • IRGC ready to share intelligence, electronic warfare experience with Syria: Salami

The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the elite military force is ready to share its experience in the field of cyber, intelligence and electronic warfare with the Syrian Armed Forces.

According to Press TV, Major General Hossein Salami made the remarks in a meeting with visiting Syrian Defense Minister Ali Mahmoud Abbas in Tehran on Tuesday as the two discussed closer military and defense cooperation between Iran and Syria.

He underscored the importance of the exchange of experiences in various fields, especially in the fields of cyber, intelligence and electronic warfare.

“The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps is ready for training cooperation with the Syrian Armed Forces, including in the courses of command and staff, advanced courses of war strategies and military branches as well as to promote other specialized departments while adhering to the previous agreements,” Major General Salami said.

The IRGC chief also stressed the importance of developing defense and military cooperation between Syria and Iran, noting, “We are ready to help the Syrian Armed Forces in the required dimensions and fields.”

Salami also said the recent developments in the Israeli Occupied Territories and Gaza were a “sign of the Zionist regime’s decline,” adding, “Those who one day were after the destruction of Syria with a global attack, today are on the path of decline and destruction.”

Abbas, for his part, appreciated the Islamic Republic for supporting Syria in the fight against terrorism, specifically the Daesh terrorist group.

The Syrian Armed Forces, with the resistance of the Syrian people and the unwavering support of Iran and Hezbollah “will teach the enemy a lesson,” Abbas said. “We will achieve a great victory, which is the cleansing of the Syrian soil from the invaders with God's assistance and by inflicting deadly blows on the enemy.”

“Thanks to the resistance, the enemy is retreating on a daily basis, and we emphasize that the US policies in the region are deteriorating and have caused them to suffer other failures in other regions,” he added.

The Syrian defense minister also highlighted the necessity of promoting cooperation between Syria and Iran in various military and training sectors in order to stand against and defeat the enemies.
