BERLIN – The Islamic Republic of Iran’s military role in the Syrian civil war conflict prompted a group of Iranian activists in late September to launch a Facebook page and a petition campaign to apologize to Syrians for the bloodshed caused by the regime in Tehran.

According to Iran expert and Fox News analyst Lisa Daftari, the “Sorry Syria” campaign’s mission statement declares: “As a group of Iranians, we believe it is our main responsibility to denounce the destructive intervention of the Islamic Republic of Iran, particularly the Quds force, in the Syrian crisis. We wish the Syrian people peace and dignity and support their aspiration of gaining their inalienable human rights.”

The “Sorry Syria” Facebook page contains posts mainly in Persian. There are some English contributions.

As of Wednesday, more than 2000 people have “liked” the Facebook page.
