Major General Qaddem Soleimani, the Commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) stated that ISIS would have overran Syria if it were not for Iran.
“If the Islamic Republic did not help the Syrian government’s resistance, today Daesh (ISIS) would be ruling all over the country,” IRNA quoted Soleimani as saying during a speech in on Monday in Qom.
“Today the victor in the battle against the Takfiris is the Islamic Republic,” he added.
He further emphasized that the USA have not been able to undermine Iran’s influence in the region and that it has been forced to change its policy.
Soleimani paid homage to all the Iranian martyrs who have died fighting against terrorist forces in Syria..
