Iran would provide aid to Syria if it came under attack by external forces, an Iranian Revolutionary Guards official told pan-Arab Al Arabiya news channel Monday, after the US accused the Guards' Quds Force Saturday of providing arms to the embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The unnamed Iranian source insisted that Iran - one of Syria's strongest allies - has "not yet" interfered in Syrian affairs in the ten months of conflict between opposition groups and government forces, and in which over 5,000 people have been killed according to the United Nations.

The source said that Iran believes that the situation in Syria is different than "other countries that saw similar protests," and added that the Revolutionary Guards "surround" Syria through their allies in Iraq and Lebanon.

The Iranian military official also said that "sources" in Syria have assured Tehran through official channels that the situation in Syria is "stable."
