Reports indicate, however, that the majority of prisoners have rejected this proposition. A prisoner in his mid-sixties, Adam Khan Barahouie, is protesting in response to the ‘amnesty deal’.
This is the latest desperate attempt by the Iranian Regime to prop up the flailing regime of the Syrian Dictator Bashar al-Assad.
So far, thousands of Iranian soldiers have been killed in the Syrian Civil War; not to mention the thousands of recruits from Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, who were promised riches or Iranian citizenship in exchange for their help.
The Iranian mullahs know that if the Syrian dictator is toppled by resistance forces, their regime is next.
A Rajaai Shar Karj prisoner, who wished to remain anonymous for safety reasons, said that prisoners who are pardoned to fight in Syria, are not allowed to disclose the reason that they have been released.
He said: “My mother staunchly rejected the idea of volunteering and told to let Khamenei and Rafsanjani send their children, not the helpless prisoners and Afghans.”
Now it appears, that the Iranian and Syrian Regimes are losing so badly at the hands of the democratic Syrian opposition, that they need to dispatch elderly prisoners on a suicide mission.
