According to multiple reports, Iran has decided to deploy about 4,000 troops to the neighboring country Syria in order to support the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in their fight against the foreign-backed terrorists and jihadists.

 The decision to send a first contingent of the 4,000 Revolutionary Guards to Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad’s forces was made before last week’s presidential election.

 The presidential election has brought the reformist cleric Hassan Rouhani into Power in Iran, although nothing will really change in the stances of Iran with this new president, following the steps of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

 Iran is now fully committed to preserving Assad’s regime, according to pro-Iranian sources which have been deeply involved in the Islamic Republic’s security, even to the extent of proposing to open up a new ‘Syrian’ front on the Golan Heights against Israel
