( Baghdad – Iran has formed what it calls the Shiite Liberation Army whose units will be deployed in Arab countries. The army has been formed under the command of Major General Qasem Soleimani- commander of Quds Force.

Head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, General Mohamed Ali Falaki, in a statement issued to the media said, “The forces that belong to this army are not just Iranians. Anywhere where there is a fight, we organize and supply the army from the people of these areas.”

It may be mentioned here that Iran is fighting on three fronts- Iraq, Syria and Yemen.

Falaki, in his statement while talking with regard to Syria said that it was not wise for the Iranian forces to be directly asked to jump into war in Syria.

“Our role should be limited to train, supply, and prepare the Syrians to fight in their areas,” Falaki added.


Adding further he said, “These troops that are currently fighting in Syria alongside the Pakistani ‘Zanbion’ forces, Iraqi ‘Haidarion’ forces, as well as Hezbollah legion that includes Iraqi Hezbollah militia and Syrian Hezbollah militia are fighting under the command of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.”
