Assad denies there is Iranian military force in Syria

<p style="text-align: left;">Syrian President Bashar al-Assad refuted a Israeli claim about attacking Iranian bases in Syria and stressed that there is no Iranian troop in Syria.

&ldquo;We do not have Iranian troops. We never had, and you cannot hide it. We were no ashamed to say that we have. Like we invited the Russians, we could have invited the Iranians,&rdquo; Assad told Russia Today.

&ldquo;We have Iranian officers who work with the Syrian Army as help.&rdquo;

Assad also stated that Israel said that they had attacked Iranian bases and camps but there were Syrians that were wounded or martyred, &ldquo;not a single Iranian. So, how could they say that we have it?&rdquo;

&ldquo;It is a lie. We have always said that we have Iranian officers, but they work with our army; we don&rsquo;t have troops,&rdquo; he added.

Assad further stated that the US Army came to Syria illegally, and will sooner or later have to leave the country. &ldquo;People don&rsquo;t accept foreigners in this region anymore.&rdquo;
