Aleppo International airport turned Iran's cargo station and Soleimani base: source
 
(Zaman Al Wasl)- A well-informed source said Aleppo International Airport is under full control of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) led by Qasim Soleimani, the de-facto commander the Shiite militias in Syria.

Soleimani, 62, has appeared more than once at the heavily-guarded airport flying via the giant cargo plane (An-124 Ruslan). 

Iran also uses Ilyushin Il-76 and Lockheed C-130 military transport aircrafts in Aleppo airport.

The airport was evacuated from any military and civilians presence to be an Iranian stronghold and depot for arms shipments, according to the source.

Mag. Gen. Soleimani has led Quds Force since 1998 where the Revolutionary Guard’s a division is responsible for extraterritorial military and clandestine operations.  
 
The Iranian regime spends an average of $10-12 billion in Syria annually, while the annual support afforded by the government to Iranian citizens is approximately $8 billion, reports say. 

Since the Syrian revolution erupted in 2011, more than 560,000 people have been killed, and more than 6 million people have been displaced.
