“With Western pressure growing on Bashar Assad over the latest massacres of defenseless women and children in Syria, Iranian officials again are warning the world against any action against the Middle East dictator.

“The pro-Assad ‘resistance’ has its finger on the trigger and the aggressors will not survive the conflict, a senior commander of the Revolutionary Guards, Brig. Gen. Massoud Jazaeri, told Mashregh, a media outlet run by the Guards. Iranian officials often refer to Iran, Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon as the resistance front.

“Mashregh reported in March that Iran’s armed forces had formed a joint war room that included officers from Syria, Iran and Hezbollah for a coordinated military response to an attack on Syria.

“‘A conflict in Syria will engulf the region and its main victims will be the people of Syria themselves,’ Jazaeri warned the protesters. ‘The Zionist regime and the interests of the enemies of Syria are all within range of the resistance fire.'”
