The head of Iran’s National Security Council said on Tuesday that Tehran and Moscow are sharing facilities to fight against terrorism, after Russia confirmed that its long-range bombers based in Iran had struck targets inside Syria.

“Iranian-Russian cooperation in the fight against terrorism in Syria is a strategic one and we share our potential and facilities in this field,” Ali Shamkhani was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA.



Russia has deployed Tupolev Tu-22M bombers at an air base near the Iranian city of Hamadan to carry out air strikes against militants in Syria.
