Iranian Revolutionary Guards affiliated news agency, Fars is reporting that a senior commander of the IRGC was killed in Syria, the fourth Iranian commander to die there in the last month.
Colonel Mostafa Ezzatollah Soleimani was killed near the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.
Iranian regime media have since last week announced the deaths of five IRGC personnel in Syria, bringing the total killed there to 20 since October 9.
Among those have been four Revolutionary Guards commanders, including General Hossein Hamedani, a veteran of the Iran-Iraq war, who was killed near Aleppo.
Iranian regime supports the regime of Syrian Assad, and while it doesn’t officially admits it sends troops to Syria, it has deployed military "advisors" as well as fighters to the war-torn country for years while providing the government with military, financial, and political backing.
