Iran ready to send fighters to Syria


ran is willing to send fighters to key ally Syria if Damascus requests them, a senior Iranian official said Thursday on a visit to the war-torn country.

"If Syria makes a request (for Iranian forces), we will study the request and make a decision," said Alaedin Boroujerdi, the chairman of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign policy committee.

"What's important is that Iran is serious about the fight against terrorism," he added. "We have supplied aid and weapons and sent advisors to Syria and Iraq."
