Iranian Gen. (ret.) Mohammad Ali Falaki, one of the Iranian forces leaders in Syria, recently revealed that Iran has formed a “Shiite Liberation Army” led by Quds Force commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani. The Quds Force is responsible for the Islamic Republic’s extraterritorial operations.
“The Shiite Liberation Army is currently fighting on three fronts – Iraq, Syria and Yemen,” Falaki told Mashregh news agency on Thursday. “This army is not only composed of Iranians but it recruits locally from the regions witnessing fighting.”
Falaki said the main objective behind the formation of the first nucleus of the “Shiite Liberation Army” is to “eradicate Israel after 23 years, especially now that these battalions are on Israeli borders.”
