Salim Idris, Chief of Staff of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), said that Iranians in Syria had 24 hours to leave the country otherwise FSA would not be responsible about their lives.
Speaking to AA on Monday, Idris said that some Iranians in Syria were held captive by FSA and Iranian government claimed that they were civilians, not soldiers.
So, we needed to make an explanation, said Idris, and called on Iranians in Syria to leave the country within 24 hours.
Support of Iran and Russia to Syrian regime did not decrease, on the contrary it increased, said Idris, and claimed that security forces of Syrian regime were being directed by Russian and Iranian experts.
Idris said that some of the FSA soldiers, who were released during prisoner swap in Damascus, told that they were interrogated by Iranians.
