TEHRAN (ISNA)-A senior Iranian military official said that the country's policy is based on not sending forces to Resistance Front.

Policy and wisdom is based on not sending individuals for fighting in the Resistance Front, said Chief Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, adding young Iranians are eager to defend the Islamic Revolution and Islamic Resistance.

Iranian officials have always emphasized that the country has not deployed forces in Syria and its presence in friendly Syria is limited to a counseling role.

But Hezbollah resistance force sent its fighters to Northern Syria to help the country's army and popular forces take back the strategic province of Aleppo from the terrorist groups, including the al-Nusra Front and ISIL.

In a surge of power, the pro-government troops that are backed by the Syrian and Russian air forces have earned an increasing number of battlefields across the province in the last few months.
