BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – Two of Iran’s highest-ranking commanders made a surprise visit to Damascus, Syria on Sunday as the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Idlib operation approaches.

According to a report from the Syrian capital, the Iranian Army Chief of Staff Mohammad Bagheri and the commander of the Quds Force for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Major General Qassem Soleimani arrived in Damascus to meet with their Syrian military counterparts.

The two Iranian commanders are reportedly meeting with the Syria leadership at this time; however, it is not clear whether or not they will meet with President Bashar Al-Assad.

The arrival of these Iranian commanders comes just two weeks after Assad made his first visit to Tehran since the start of the Syrian conflict.

No risk of it : Friends don’t bomb friends… Moreover, F-35 ain’t stealth to Rafale and the Nostradamus OTH sees them coming from 3,000km 🙂

For once Israelis can do a favour to the world, it’d be sad not to get rid from someone as evil as Soleimani.

Bibi is too chickenhawk! Moshe Dayan would have ordered to shoot down Soleimani’s jet before it landed.comment image

BTW, message to Hezbollah fanboys, Soleimani also ordered the murder of YOUR Mustefa Badreddine since he opposed his project to allow ISIS into Syria 😉

And much much more Russian and Chinese gear. BTW, SAA uses French Milan ATGM and Gazelle helicopters.

Most of IS gear was seized from Iraqi and Syrian armies stockpiles, Iraq uses a LOT of US and French gear.
