Attack on Syria would be seen as attack on Iran, says Kahamanei aide
Iran would consider any attack on Syria an attack on itself, a senior government official was quoted as saying on Saturday.

 

"Syria has a very basic and key role in the region for promoting firm policies of resistance ... For this reason an attack on Syria would be considered an attack on Iran and Iran's allies," said Ali Akbar Velayati, an aide to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to the Mehr news agency.
