Deputy of Foreign Ministry of African and Arab Affairs, Hossein Amirabdullahian, congratulated the Syrian army and its people for the capture of the city of al-Qusayr, and the “victory over the infidel terrorists.” It should be stressed that Iranian leaders and the Iranian media are stressing in their messages that Syria is dealing with an “Arab-Western plot,” in which Sunni “terrorists” and “al-Qaeda operatives” are being sent to Syria to bring down Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Most of the criticism is being leveled at the Gulf states, which Iran claims are trying to weaken Shiite Iran’s influence in the region.
