Afghan refugees in Iran being sent to fight and die for Assad in Syria

Afghan refugees in Iran being sent to fight and die for Assad in Syria | World news | The Guardian:

Iranian state-affiliated agencies reported in May that at least 200 Fatemioun members have been killed in Syria since the beginning of the war. How many more have lost their lives since is not clear.

Iran has always claimed it is participating in an advisory capacity in Syria, dispatching senior commanders to plan and oversee operations, but the Afghan involvement shows it is using other methods.
