Iran calls for boys to fight as CHILD SOLDIERS in Syria alongside Assad’s troops

Iran has released a propaganda video aimed at recruiting child soldiers to defend Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

A new promotional video clip entitled ‘Martyrs who defend the sacred shrine’ has been broadcast on Iranian state media in recent days, encouraging children to take part in the civil war in Syria.

It comes after Iran’s army chief said the forces it had deployed in Syria in the first such operation abroad since the 1979 revolution were volunteers working under Revolutionary Guards supervision, and the regular army was not directly involved.
