Iranian general says Assad is like “soldier serving for Khamenei”

Major General Rahim Safavi, Iranian Adviser for Military Affairs, said that thousands of Hezbollah terrorists have been killed in Syria and their number exceeds the number of Iranians killed there, while leaked posthumous statements of the Iranian Major General Hussein Hamdani, who was killed last year, described Assad as a soldier serving Khamenei.

Al-Safavi said that Major General Hussein Hamadani, who was killed in Syria, formed a popular fighting force of 20,000 militants to fight opposition fighters.

This statement comes one day after 7 Hezbollah terrorists were declared dead in Aleppo battles, where Hezbollah fights in support of Assad regime against opposition fighters.
