By Khalid Kazimov – Trend:
The chief of Iran's Basij (volunteer forces) Brigadier General, Mohammad Reza Naqdi, has visited frontier area along Syria and Israel, Fars news agency reported.
According to the report, the commander of Iran’s paramilitary force, Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, has recently paid a visit to the Quneitra Governorate in the Golan Heights (southern Syria).
However, the report did not provide further information on his visit’s date and purposes.
Several high-ranking commanders of the Lebanese Hezbollah were reportedly killed last January in the Quneitra Governorate.
Following the outbreak of conflict in Syria since 2011, many Iranian military advisors have arrived in the Arab country to give support for President Bashar al-Assad’s government.
Tehran sees Damascus as a main strategic ally in the region and as a part of an "axis of resistance" against Israel.
