General Ahmad Gholami, has been killed in fighting with the Islamic State (IS, ISIS,ISIL) terrorist group near Aleppo in northern Syria on Aug. 30, Iran’s ISNA news agency reported.
Gholami was one of the IRGC commanders during the Iran-Iraq war (1980-1988).
Over the past few years and since the crisis broke out in Syria and Iraq, several commanders of the IRGC have been reportedly killed in clashes with “terrorists”.
Iranian officials have constantly denied that their servicemen have boots on ground in Syria and Iraq, saying the officers of the Islamic Republic are in Syria and Iraq as advisers at official request from both countries’ governments.
