Instilling Iranian ideology in Syrian society | Iranian Cultural Centre provides Persian language courses, offering cash reward to overachieving children
Iranians in Syria are engaged in activities targeting children with the aim of instilling Iranian ideologies into the segments of society, trying to improve their image among the people in the areas where the Iranians are present.
In this context, on September 15, the Iranian Cultural Centre in al-Mayadeen opened free evening courses aimed at teaching children the Persian language for primary school students. Those working at the Cultural Center informed all students and their parents that a cash reward of one million Syrian pounds will be allocated to children who pass the Persian language test with an excellent grade.
It is worth nothing that the Iranian Cultural Center launched this educational activity under the name “Buds of the Euphrates”, as part of Iranian forces’ efforts to strengthen their influence in the Syrian areas they control.
In July, the Syrian Observatory published that the Iranian Cultural Center in Deir ez-Zor city organized a recreational trip for about 30 children from the city to the “Garden of Friends” established by the Iranian Center in Hawijet Sakar.
In last July, the Iranian-backed militias of “Fatemiyoun” have disbanded the regime-affiliated “peasant union” in areas where they are deployed in Al-Mayadeen. “Fatemiyoun” militias also started to reclaim farmlands in the area through establishing workshops for plowing fields at lower prices.
Moreover, the Iranian-backed militias offered to subsidizing the farmers’ crops in return for investing the plowing of farmlands and not selling the harvest to any body but them.
This development comes as a part of the Iranian-backed militias’ efforts to strengthen their presence in Al-Mayadeen area in eastern Deir Ezzor.
