Iran: Military cooperation with Russia is strategic
Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani has defended his country’s decision to allow Russian jets to bomb targets in Syria from Iran.
“Tehran-Moscow cooperation in the fight against terrorism in Syria is strategic and we exchange capacities and potentialities in this field,” Shamkhani told the Islamic Republic News Agency(IRNA).
Yesterday, Russian long-range Tupolev-22M3 bombers and Sukhoi Su-34 fighter-bombers used the Hamedan air base in Iran to launch airstrikes against the Syrian opposition in the cities of Aleppo, Deir Ez-Zor and Idlib.
This is the first time that Russia uses an Iranian military base to bomb sites in Syria.
