'Lebanon, Syria are Iran’s strategic depth'

TEHRAN, Sept. 8 (MNA) – Lebanon and Syria are Iran’s strategic depth, says a top military advisor to the Supreme Leader.

“Defending the Palestinian nation is in line with our strategic defense interests and Lebanon and Syria are our strategic depth,” Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said on Saturday.

Safavi, the former commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, went on to say that “if the Zionist regime does anything against us, resistance groups, especially the Lebanese Hezbollah, as our strategic defensive depth, will give a response to this regime more easily.”
