An Iranian military official revealed that the Revolutionary Guard has sent commanders and trainers to the battlefields to support its militias in the region as part of the military intervention of Tehran in the Arab countries.
Brigadier Hamid Abadri, deputy Dean of the Imam Hussein University, which is specialized in preparing officers and commanders of the Revolutionary Guard, stated that they have dispatched a number of leaders and trainers from the establishment to battlefields he described as “resistance fronts,” a description adopted by Iran on its allies in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon.
On Tuesday, Abadi said in an interview with the Tasnim agency of the Revolutionary Guards, that the university is seeking to graduate officers who are able to fight in the real war, in other words that these individuals can be resourceful in the various fields of different battles going on these days, as he put it.
Abadi said that the university sent a number of its leaders and trainers to different fronts, where some commanders were dispatched before to carry out the tasks entrusted on them and to gain experience in these types of wars.
In February, Iran announced that students from the Imam Hussein Military University would be sent to Syria and Iraq to be trained in the field among the group of the Revolutionary Guards stationed there as part of a training program to prepare officers.
Analysts believe that Syria and Iraq have become a living ground to train the Revolutionary Guards and the Iranian militias in these two Arab countries.
In a speech last week, Iran's new defense minister stated that Iran would continue to provide material and weapons support to the so-called "resistance movements" in the region – which are the militias and terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah in Lebanon, Houthis in Yemen and extremist groups in Iraq and others.
