IRGC to ‘israel’: Await our response for shedding innocent blood

The chief commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the Israeli regime has to pay the price and await response for the martyrdom of one of the elite force’s military advisors in a recent act of aggression by the illegal entity against Syria’s northwestern city of Aleppo.

Major General Hossein Salami made the stern warning on Wednesday after Israel’s airstrikes on Aleppo claimed the lives of at least 17 people and injured 15 others in the wee hours of Monday.

Among those martyred was Saeed Abyar, an IRGC military advisor in Syria.

Expressing his condolences on Abyar’s martyrdom in a criminal attack by the Israeli regime, Salami said, “The child-killing Zionist criminals should know that they will pay for the innocent blood that was shed in this crime; they should wait for the response.”

Meanwhile, Brigadier General Esmail Qa’ani, commander of the IRGC Quds Force, praised the capabilities of the resistance front in the West Asia region and said the force is a decision-maker and boasts power of discretion.

“Today, each part of the resistance [front] throughout the region, has its own independent and appropriate structure and has grown step by step,” Qa’ani said in a commemoration ceremony in the northern city of Babolsar.

“Today, all elements of the resistance front are on the path of good against evil.”

The Israeli regime has carried out hundreds of attacks against Syria since 2011, when the Arab nation found itself in the grip of rampant foreign-backed militancy and terrorism.

The Iranian military advisors, who are present in Syria at the official invitation of the Syrian government, have played an important role in helping the Syrians fight terrorism and establish peace, stability, and lasting security in the Arab country.

Tel Aviv has significantly ramped up its strikes since last October, when it began a genocidal war on the Gaza Strip, in what has been described by observers as a reckless bid threatening to further fuel tensions throughout the region.

Israel has been the principal supporter of terrorist groups that oppose the democratically-elected government of President Bashar al-Assad since the foreign-backed militancy erupted in Syria.
