IRGC Commander: Great Victories Expected in Syria
“We will witness great victories in Syria in the next few days,” Jafari said, addressing a ceremony in the Western city of Hamadan held to commemorate the martyred IRGC Commander, Brigadier General Hossein Hamadani who was killed in Northern Syria on Thursday.
Noting that the security of Western Asia, including Iran, is dependent on Syria and the resistance front, he said, “We should support this front with all our power.”
Jafari also warned that the “arrogant powers in the region are after overthrowing the ruling system in Syria to extend their influence in the Muslim states”.
The IRGC in a statement on Friday announced that its war veteran commander had been killed in Northern Syria, while providing military counseling services to the Syrian forces in their fight against the Takfiri terrorists.
General Hamadani was martyred during an attack by the ISIL Takfiri terrorists in the outskirts of the city of Aleppo while fulfilling his duty as military advisor and defending the holy Shiite shrines in the country, said the statement.
General Hamadani was in Syria to render military advice to the Syrian army and popular forces in their fight against the ISIL terrorists in the Arab country.
Also in a message on Saturday, Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said the death of Brigadier General Hamadani in Syria would make Tehran more resolute to put an end the war of militancy in Syria.
“The martyrdom of Brigadier General Hamadani reinvigorates our determination to continue his path and take a harsh and strong revenge from the terrorists and their supporters,” Brigadier General Pourdastan said in his message.
