Iranian authorities could allow Russia to use the Hamadan air base in western Iran for Moscow’s aerial operation against terrorist in Syria if the situation in the crisis-torn Middle Eastern nation demanded it, Sputniknews.com reports, citing Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan.
“If the situation and conditions [in Syria] demand the support, we will do this job,” Dehghan said, as quoted by the Tasnim news agency. Iran allowed the Russian strike force to operate from the base in the mountainous western Hamadan province in mid-August. The jets returned to Russia a week later, after completing their anti-terror mission, which targeted jihadists in Syria.
