Iranian military commander Brigadier General Hossein Hamedani has been Martyred in Syria, where he was giving military advice to the Syrian army in its fight against Takfiri militants in the Arab country.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said in a statement carried by Sepah News on Friday that Brig. Gen. Hamedani, a commander with the IRGC, had been martyred by Takfiri Daesh terrorists during an advisory mission on the outskirts of the Syrian city of Aleppo the night before.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. Around 250,000 people have lost their lives and millions more been displaced in the crisis.

Takfiri terrorist groups, including Daesh and the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda (al-Nusra Front), have been engaging in a terror campaign in Syria.

The Syrian military has been fighting the terrorist groups for over four years.
