April 23, 2019 - The Lawyers League of Syria on Sunday called for the terrorist designation of the Syrian regime forces, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO), for their involvement in war crimes against non-combatant and Syrian civilians during the eight-year war. The League considers the Syrian military and paramilitary forces similar to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), which was designated as an FTO by the US State Department last week.
The Syrian Lawyers League states that the Iranian and Syrian regimes are strategic partners in supporting terrorism across the Middle East and beyond. They are also the financier of terrorist organizations, including the Lebanese Hezbollah and other terrorist and extremist groups in Iraq.
It is worth noting that the mullahs’ regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei embraced the Syrian dictator President Bashar Assad in Tehran on February 25.
Khamenei has been supporting the Syrian dictator in his bloody eight-year war against its own people.
During their meeting in Tehran, Khamenei said he would support Assad wholeheartedly. Assad on his behalf expressed his profound gratitude at Khamenei for his bloody support.
The presence of the IRGC in Syria and its support for the Assad military has resulted in the death of nearly half a million civilians and has made more than 11 million people homeless.
The entire Syrian infrastructure and the national treasures have been destroyed in the war that has been continued in favor of Assad and Khamenei.
Khamenei has given more than $16 billion to Assad in order to keep him in power. Some say this is actually a very conservative estimate.
IRGC Quds Force chief Qasem Soleimani’s deputy commander said the IRGC brought Assad to Tehran on Feb. 5.
