Reports on martyrdom of Iranian advisors in Syria ‘baseless’
An informed Iranian official early Saturday denied the reports of certain Western-Arab media outlets over martyrdom of several Iranian advisors in Hama airport in west-central Syria on Friday.
Talking to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on condition of anonymity, the Iranian official described the reports as ‘lies and baseless’.
The official said such reports are ‘propaganda campaign’ launched by certain Western-Arab media outlets aimed at ‘lifting the spirits of Zionists’.
Sky News had reported that the Thursday attack at Hama military airport targeted the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) missile system, claiming that at least 57 IRGC members were killed in this attack.
