The Assad regime has been transformed into a “plaything” in the hands of Russia and the Iranian regime, and they are calling all the shots in Syria, said Riyad Hijab, General Coordinator of the Syrian opposition High Negotiations Committee.

The Assad regime has become a clan of thieves and plunderers, he said Friday in an interview with Al Jazeera TV.

“There is no regime in Syria, and those ruling this country now are the Russians and the Iranian regime. Bashar Assad is merely a puppet and has no armed forces. There are only a small number of paramilitary forces under his command, and those fighting against the Syrian opposition forces are sectarian militias brought from Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan,” Hijab explained.

“The Iranian regime has pierced its claws into Syria, and now the Lebanese Hezbollah flag and images of Hassan Nassrollah are being distributed in the streets,” he added.
