Hossein Hamedani: Iranian General Killed, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has offered his condolences on the killing of Brigadier General Hossein Hamedani, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), by terrorist groups in Syria.
In a message on Friday, Rouhani said the killing of the brave IRGC commander during an advisory mission to help strengthen the resistance movement in its fight against the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group and its allies was “a big loss and deep grief.”
The Iranian president said Hamedani played a leading role in establishing the IRGC and successfully commanding different operations during eight years of defense against the Iraqi invasion.
Rouhani extended his condolences to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Iranian Armed Forces, particularly the IRGC forces, and to all Iranians.
The IRGC announced in a statement carried by Sepah News on Friday that Hamedani had been killed by Takfiri Daesh terrorists during an advisory mission on the outskirts of the Syrian city of Aleppo the night before.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. Around 250,000 people have lost their lives and millions more been displaced in the crisis. Takfiri terrorist groups, including Daesh and the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda (al-Nusra Front), have been engaged in a terror campaign in Syria.
The Syrian military has been fighting the terrorist groups for over four years.
Iran has been offering Syria military advice in its fight against terrorist groups.
