Fighters from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have been filmed fighting the Islamic State in the Syrian Desert.

The direct engagement of the elite troops comes as part of a wider offensive waged by the Islamic Republic to retaliate an IRGC officer who was captured and slaughtered by ISIS a few days ago in Iraq near the Syrian borders.

Mohsen Hojaji was working as a military advisor for the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces when he was captured and eventually executed by the Islamic State.

According to a statement released by the IRGC, the Islamic State has launched a military campaign to eliminate the terror group from Syria.
