Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards take part in an annual military parade in Tehran, on September 22, 2013Iran on Wednesday denied as “completely unfounded” a report that it is recruiting Afghan refugees to fight in Syria to help its ally battle rebels. Citing Afghans and Western officials, the Wall Street Journal reported last week that Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards was offering Iranian residency and $500 monthly stipends to thousands of Afghans to fight Syrian rebels. “The claim of the US paper is completely unfounded and is aimed at damaging Iran’s reputation in Afghanistan,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said in a statement carried by Iranian media. “This is an insult to the people of Afghanistan and the Wall Street Journal needs to apologise to them,” she added.
