According to Arab media reports, Iran is trying to drastically alter the demographic makeup of Damascus by expelling 200,000 Sunnis from the city. Could you imagine the headlines if Israel did this?
According to the report, the overwhelmingly Shiite Iran is helping the regime to raze homes in the relatively plush Mezzeh neighborhood of Damascus, pushing out the Sunni residentsin an effort to cement local support for the regime.
Hundreds of families living in the area were given just a few hours to evacuate their homes, the report said.
