Danon: Iran is running 82,000 fighters in Syria

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon Thursday told the UN Security Council, “”Iran is currently controlling 82 thousand fighters in Syria.” He itemized this figure as 3,000 members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, more than 10,000 Hizballah fighters and the remainder Shiite militias sponsored by Tehran. This mixed foreign legion costs Iran around $35 billlion.

          You couldn’t read anyone’s fortune, you’re much more adept at being an imbecile posting inane and offensive rubbish on Internet forums thinking somehow it changes the reality.

            Bravado. Very good. Days numbered, for the golden calf of Zionism, the idolatrous apartheid terror state in Suriyan Palestine… jew bollocks. Take it to the bank.

    It’s not money in the pocket of each fighter. It’s arms, transportation, food, clothing, housing, all supply lines, guarding of bases and supply lines. They probably pay something to family of dead and wounded and to Russians for air support. Intelligence garhering. War is expensive. Who is stupid now?

      it’s a lie. a weak one that undermines the credibility of the beleiver. even a regular properly equipped US soldier only costs a hundred thousand a year. Iran’s entire defence budget is only 19 billion, and that’s up 90%. It’s obvious that most of these irregulars will be in it for a thousand, or so, a month – and the plunder. How much have ‘the producers’ Saud and the ‘west’ sunk into this ‘Sunni spring’? LMAO

    The cost of ignorance is phenomenal!

    Danny Danon, remember me I gave you the card with the shekel/tehilim and the book of EBay ha Nachal at the Federation? The UN has no reason to refuse bringing the bones to Mt Zion. Corruption can pick up the bill instead of going to jail. Free trip to Jerusalem for each citizen of planet earth.

    Exterminate the Iranian leadership, and all their apologists, like the filthy cockroaches they are. Destroy all Islamist regimes.

    Iran is not spending Western amount of money for every slug in the army. Over 1000 USD per day per soldier, with all the expenses (food, ammo, transport etc) is not how muslim armies operate. You can call Ivan stupid, but in this case he’s right. Waiting for them to overspent is not the solution, because any money spent are dwarfed by the funds coming from their victims (Western World) in form of welfare for migrants, welfare for migrant kids, foreign aid and so on.

      Eventually they will run out of what Obama gave to/stole for them. May the Earth swing open like a movie theater garbage can, and swallow up all Islamist trash, and their cowardly, politically correct sissy sympathizers in the West.

    I looked over Hebrew sources related to Danon’s speech at Security Council of UN on 25.01.2018. No reference to 25 bln USD found. However the number is compatible with total military spending of Iran for 2017. For orientation, current Iranian GDP is about 420-450 bln USD, while its national budget is estimated to be 160 bln. Danone remarks in his speech that military expenditure of Iran is about 22% of iranian budget ,which fits the 35 bln. Our unfriend iVaN is right. The 35 bln is most probably yearly military expenditure of Iran.

      Pence only last week spoke in the Knesset to say, and I quote DeBKa ‘…The speaker castigated the Iranian regime as “dangerous, dictatorial and brutal.” Last year Tehran spent more than $4bn on “malign activities in Syria, Lebanon and other countries in the region,”

    Pls correct error in second sentence: Instead of 25 bln should be 35 bln.

    Good question New Stones. Presence of Iranian Air Force will elicit IAF/IDF entering the war which may bring in US Air force in support. Otherwise, Iran was going to send detachments from 5 Tactical fighter base, about 200 jet fighters to Syria
