  • IRGC advisor, 2 Hezbollah members martyred in Israeli aggression on Syria

A member of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy serving as a military advisor has been martyred in an Israeli strike on Syria.

According to Press TV, in a statement on Friday, the IRGC Navy said its member -- Reza Zarei -- was assassinated along with two members of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement on Friday.

They were martyred in an Israeli attack on Syria's northwestern Baniyas port earlier in the day, it added.

The illegal Zionist entity frequently targets military positions inside Syria, especially those of resistance fighters, who have played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against foreign-backed terrorists.

Iran maintains an advisory mission in Syria at the request of Damascus to help the war-torn Arab country defeat the foreign-backed terrorists who have been fighting the democratically-elected Syrian government since 2011.

Back in January, five IRGC military advisors along with several Syrian forces were martyred in an Israeli strike in the Syrian capital, Damascus.
