The Syrian civilian war has gotten completely out of hand. The country has seen a lot of civilian deaths and destruction of property.
There are rebel camps in Syria that have been seriously targeted by the Syrian government and any attempts to bring this stalemate to an end has not born any fruits. What is happening instead is that there are very many Syrian civilians that have been detained in the Syrian jails unfairly and facing a lot of emotional, physical and sexual abuse in jail. There is debris everywhere now and too many dead bodies strewn all over the place in a place that was the perfect picture of love and prosperity. There are hundreds if not thousands of refugees in the neighboring countries now who have nothing they can.
What Iran has been doing on the other hand, however, is to train, fund and offer weaponry to terror groups while offering them shelter. Iran has had a tough stance on this issue despite efforts by outside forces to dissuade them from these practices. It is a poorly kept secret that this is happening in Iran even though it is hard to understand why Iran insists on doing so. The US government has tried unsuccessfully to get involved in stopping these vices but without much luck. Iran has been arming itself for decades now and there are extremely heavy and high tech weapons in the country.
The government under the regime of president Assad was supported by the Iranian government since the Syrian war began. President Assad took on the presidency without much experience and without the support of Iran, this regime would have fallen as soon as the war started. Because Iran was a very strong ally Syria and specifically Assad’s government, she gave her all to make sure that the regime was standing. At some point when it seemed like the government would be overthrown and the opposition would take over the country, Iran got into the war head on and mad sure that this wouldn’t happen by providing troops that would protect the government.
At first, Iran didn’t get very involved in the war but offered to give advice and train the soldiers. When things got thick and the war has escalated, Iran decided to go all in and include her own military in the fight. Another thing Iran did is to add into the chemical weaponry of Syria. Iran provided Syria their best scientists who built them the chemical weapons.
Since Iran cannot supply these arms on the ground, they are doing this on air. There is an air corridor they established to get the arms both to Syria and to Lebanon through Syria. The US government have given Iran the go-ahead to transport these weapons via three airlines. Turkish authorities are said to have confiscated a truck which was headed for Syria and was full of weapons.
