Refute the claim

Verify-Sy platform team tracked the news to determine its authenticity by returning to the list of winning candidates for membership in the parliament of the Assad regime announced by the Supreme Judicial Committee responsible for the elections, as the name (Kermanshahi) was not included in the announced list, which confirms that the allegations of her winning parliament membership for the legislative role are not true. Third, the list here.

Verify-Sy was unable to verify the candidate's nationality (Ruqiya Kermanshahi) and whether she holds Iranian citizenship or is of Iranian origin.
