5,000 Ira­ni­ans reg­is­tered to fight ISIS

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in Syria and Iraq and es­pe­cially the fight against the Is­lamic State (ISIS) in Iraq and the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion has had im­pact on the neigh­bor­ing coun­tries.

The mil­i­tary in­sti­tu­tions of the Is­lamic Repub­lic of Iran are re­cruit­ing vol­un­teers to fight against the ISIS ter­ror­ists.

A large num­ber of peo­ple reg­is­ter, some on re­li­gious and some on po­lit­i­cal bases.

More­over, the Rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment in Iran an­nounced that they have been ap­proached by a large num­ber of peo­ple from the Ira­nian Kur­dis­tan who showed their readi­ness and will­ing­ness to join the Pesh­marga forces in their fight against ISIS.

Ac­cord­ing to in­for­mal fig­ures pub­lished in the Ira­nian me­dia or­ga­ni­za­tions, more than 5,000 Ira­nian na­tion­als have regis- tered to fight ISIS.

How­ever, it is not clear yet how many have been ac­tu­ally re­cruited and sent to the fronts in Iraq.

Re­ports sug­gest that in the Kur­dish cities and towns, the Ira­nian army has reg­is­tered mem­bers for the army, and some of them have al­ready par­tic­i­pated in wars in Syria and Iraq.

Some Kur­dish web­sites in Iran, on the other hands, ar­gue that the Ira­nian regime is mak­ing use of the em­pa­thy be­tween Kurds to re­cruit more peo­ple for the war. This way they also in­crease the num­ber of the Kur­dish mem­bers of the Ira­nian Army.
