Iran pledges to support Syria, Iraq with more military advisers

will continue sending military advisers to Syria and Iraq in a fight against terrorism, Iranian Defence Minister said on Monday.

"We will help Syria and Iraq as much as we can because parts of the Islamic community have been under attack and we are defending (them)," Xinhua quoted Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan as saying.

The Islamic republic deploys military advisers to these countries in a bid to defend Islamic countries as "Islam and Muslim nations are important to us," he said.

As for the strategic city of Aleppo in northern Syria, he said, "eventually, the occupied territories in Aleppo will be liberated (from the terrorists) by the resistance front."
