of Iran, December 16, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and its mercenary militia have literally occupied the city of Aleppo and have started killing and mass execution of civilians and hospital medical staff in Syria. They even shoot the ambulances carrying the wounded. A limited number of Assad's army personnel who are present there, are under the command of the IRGC and have minor roles. The NCRI statement reads:
The IRGC headquarters is located at the Sheikh Najjar garrison inside the industrial zone north-east of Aleppo. The IRGC commanders in that garrison give orders to the paramilitary mercenaries and Assad army commanders. Iraqi militias, Lebanese Hezbollah, Afghan Fatimid forces, Pakistani Zeinabiyoun, and part of Syrian paramilitary mercenaries under the Iranian regime's command are present in that garrison. The number of IRGC forces and its mercenaries in Aleppo and around it amounts to 25,000. Iraqi mercenaries such as al-Nujaba, Asaeb Ahl al-Haq, Kataeb Hezbollah, and others are dispatched from Iran's Abadan airport to Syria by the IRGC. IRGC funds the whole operation. The NCRI statement added that in a telephone conversation with Bashar Assad on December 14, Rouhani, the Iranian regime's president, said that his regime 'will stand by the people and the government of that country until all terrorists are expelled from Syria.' Also, Larijani, the regime's parliament speaker, in a message to his Syrian counterpart called the crime against humanity in Aleppo as 'a turning point in the relentless battle against terrorism and its defenders'! Ramazan Sharif, director of IRGC public relations, said, 'This victory will certainly have its impact in resolving the crisis in Yemen and Bahrain and on the rest of terrorists in Syria and Iraq.' (FARS, the IRGC news agency- December 15)
In contrast, IRGC forces and mercenaries are the most dangerous terrorists present in Syria, and the Iranian regime is the main sponsor of terrorism in the world today that has been named as 'ISIS godfather' by the Iranian people. This regime is the main source of crisis in Syria and in the region. It has become more emboldened every day due to the world community inaction making it confident that it would not be held accountable for its crimes. The National Council of Resistacne of Iran enphasized that the only way to end this crisis, to establish peace and tranquility in the region, and to eradicate ISIS is to evict the Iranian regime, IRGC and their mercenaries from the region, especially from Syria.
People in many countries such as Holland, Germany, England, US, France, Turkey, Australia, Italy, Jordan, and Iran have stood in solidarity with the people of Aleppo in Syria since it's fall to Assad's forces in front of Russian and Iranian embassies protesting Aleppo massacre. In Iran in Ahvaz during the soccer math in Alghadir stadium people chanted Arhal Arhal ya Bashar which means: Get out Bashar referring to Bashar Assad Syria's dictator. In Ottawa the Iranian-Canadians gathered in front of the Parliament today and protested the killings of Aleppo residents in Syria. They called for the killing to be stopped and the Iranian regime to get out of Syria.
