Syria: Iranian troops alongside Hezbollah and Syrian troops join battle for Qusair


A senior US official, citing “multiple” rebel commanders, said Iranians were fighting alongside Hezbollah and Syrian government troops in the continuing battle for the border town of Qusair.

In a briefing to reporters the official said: “It is the most visible effort we have seen of Hezbollah to engage directly in the fighting in Syria as a foreign force. We understand there are also Iranians up there. That is what the Free Syrian Army commanders are telling us. I think this is an important thing to note, the direct implication of foreigners fighting on Syrian soil now for the regime.”

The latest footage from activists in Qusair showed residents picking through the rubble looking for survivors after another air strike on the town.

The US official also suggested that Wednesday’s Friends of Syria meeting in Jordan would discuss arming the rebels.
