Buying loyalty: Iran-backed militias offer young people in Al-Quneitra financial incentives

Al-Quneitra Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: reliable sources informed the Syrian Observatory that local commanders of Iranian-backed militias started to offer financial incentives to dignitaries of Al-Habariyah, Sultanah and other towns near the Syrian border strip with the Occupied Golan, in return for persuading young people in these towns to join the Iranian militias.

The Iranian-backed militias are stationed in Al-Tala’e Camp in the northern countryside of Al-Quneitra, to the east of Al-Fawwar area. These militias are attempting to join the largest possible number of the area’s young people to their ranks, since they are seeking to shield the areas of Damascus by being present in the region.
