LONDON — Iran's elite military units have been deployed to attack protesters of the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Opposition sources said Iran has sent units of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to attack thousands of anti-Assad protesters in the city of Dera.
Five protesters were killed by Syrian troops in Dera on March 18. The protesters flooded the streets of the southern city after Friday mosque prayers and were met by anti-riot and security forces armed with firearms and water cannons and supported by helicopters.
The Assad regime has acknowledged the killing of protesters in Dera. The Interior Ministry has pledged to investigate.

Well, the Iranians are backing the minority in Bahrain, the street protesters. We should back the street in Syria just as covertly.
