Iranian Armed Forces spokesman, Brig. Gen. Abolfazl Shekarchi, has stated that Iran has no need for a military base in Syria.
“Iran has no need for a base in Syria so that anyone would want to attack it,” Shekarchi told the IRNA news agency.
The spokesman recalled that Tehran was providing advice to Syria and Iraq at the request of the authorities of those countries.
He noted that Iran was not directly involved in the hostilities in Syria and Iraq while talking about the presence of Iranian troops in Syria were spread by the United States and Israel.
The Israeli authorities have repeatedly expressed concern over the presence of Iranian forces in Syria, noting that it posed a threat to Israel and the country would do everything possible to prevent Iran from creating a military base in Syria.
