Over the past few days the Free Syrian Army killed a number of militants of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) during the ongoing battles in eastern Quneitra, northwestern Dara’a and western Damascus, an area recently known as “the triangle of death.”
Iranian media outlets confirmed that a senior IRGC commander, Brigadier General Mohammad Karam Ardekani, was killed during the clashes in Dara’a province, few days after announcement of the death Ali Reza Tavassoli, an Afghan who commanded a brigade of Afghans dispatched by the Iranian regime to Syria and who is close to Qassem Suleimani, the commander of the Iranian regime’s terrorist Quds Force.
Vice-President Hisham Marwa hails the “heroic fight put up by the FSA against the regime’s terror and the Iranian invasion of Syria, especially in Dara’a, Eastern Ghouta and Aleppo.”
“The FSA fighters have repelled successive attacks led by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps in Dara’a, northern Aleppo and Eastern Ghouta over the past few days and killed and captured hundreds of the invading forces. Motivated by unshakeable faith in the cause they fight for, they have demonstrated tremendous courage and steely determination though under-resourced and outgunned,” Marwa added.
Moreover, Marwa said that “Iran does not shy away from announcing that its Revolutionary Guard Corps is spearheading most of the attacks on rebel-held areas, which represent a blatant occupation and invasion of Syria, and a flagrant violation of international conventions and norms.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
