From DEBKAfile more info on the deployment of Shia mercenary forces to the Syrian battlefield.
1. "Thousands of Afghan, Pakistani Shiites in Hizballah's advance on Golan"
"16 Feb. The Iranian-backed “Operation Quneitra Martyrs” for the capture of the Golan brings Afghan and Pakistani Shiite fighters to an Israeli border for the first time, DEBKAfile reveals. Some 2,000 of these fighters have joined an equal number of Hizballah troops spearheading a march on the Golan from southern Syria. Recruited from the Hazara and Zaynubian militias, Tehran plans to send them on to Lebanon for a second Iran-led front against Israel."
2. "Iran airlifts thousands of Shiite fighters to boost Aleppo warfront through Latakia"
"21 Feb. DEBKAfile has revealed a large-scale Iranian airlift flying thousands of Shiite fighters to the Syrian Mediterranean port of Latakia to reinforce the Syrian forces defeated at rebel hands in Aleppo and save them from retreat. Their arrival seriously disturbs Israel’s army chiefs. They reckon Tehran would be just as prompt in sending reinforcements if the Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers leading the offensive to capture the Golan town of Quneitra opposite Israel’s lines faced a setback."
Shia in Afghan and Pakistan a small minority of the population and in serious conflict with the predominant Sunni Muslim citizenry of those two nations [Afghanistan and Pakistan].
Apparently fighters now recruited by the Shia Iranian and introduced into the Syrian civil war, bolstering the forces of Hezbollah and the Alawite Syrian military contingents.
The Iranian also now confronting Israel with proxies in an increased and most menacing manner.
