On their return flights, these Iranian planes refuel at Damascus airport. The majority of the incoming aircraft are Boeing 747s of Qeshm Fars Air, which are the planes used by the notorious Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

Iran relies on European support to prop up the nuclear deal that was been abandoned by the United States. But in the meantime, representatives of Denmark and France briefed EU members on Iran’s role in foiled terrorist attacks against opposition groups in their countries.
