Two IRGC military advisors martyred by Zionist entity in an attack on Syria
The illegal Zionist entity has martyred two military advisors of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in an attack in Syria.
According to Press TV, in a statement on Saturday, the IRGC said two of its members, Mohammad Ali Ataee Shoorcheh and Panah Taqizadeh, were martyred by the Zionist regime while on an advisory mission.
It said the two IRGC officers were martyred against the backdrop of the relentless savagery of the “fake and child-killing” Israeli regime in Gaza.
Israel is committing widespread crimes in Gaza with an absolutely uncritical, flagrant support of the United States and a number of European governments, the IRGC statement read.
Iran maintains an advisory mission in Syria at the request of Damascus with the aim of helping the war-torn West Asian country get rid of the foreign-backed terrorist elements who have been fighting the democratically-elected Syrian government since 2011.
In 2017, Iran’s advisory assistance helped Syria defeat the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group. Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, who was martyred in a US airstrike near the Baghdad International Airport in January 2020, played a key role in the disgraceful defeat of Daesh.
