Media: Iranian general died in Syria

40
Newspaper "Arguments and Facts"referring to a certain Iranian television channel (its name is not given), writes that Hossein Hamedani, the general of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), allegedly died in Syria. No details about the death of the general is given, except that he died near the city of Aleppo.


American media reported that General Hamedani served as a military adviser to the Syrian government forces, and he showed himself during the war between Iran and Iraq. Apparently, information or misinformation about the death of the General IRGC began to spread through American sources.

Media: Iranian general died in Syria


The death of the Iranian brigadier general is also reported by the Reuters news agency, however, and it does not provide any details of the general’s death.

Earlier, the same source (Reuters) reported that Tehran is sending "several hundred" its troops to Syria. Official Iranian sources did not confirm this information. Meanwhile, Iran is one of Russia's allies, which supports the Syrian government army fighting international terrorism.

It should be noted that the Western media and their Ukrainian colleagues during the civil war in Ukraine almost “buried” Russian generals in the Donbass almost daily. That is why the information about the death of Hamedani needs to be confirmed (or refuted) by the Iranian Ministry of Defense.

      Is not a fact. "In war - as in war", losses are inevitable, and a bullet does not distinguish between a general and a private .. BUT! Let's wait for the details. And we will believe in the BEST yes

            Al-Mayadin: Iranian general who advised Assad's army killed in Syria
            Lebanese TV channel Al-Mayadin, linked to Hezbollah, reported on Friday 9 October that Iranian General Hossein Hamdani, a military adviser to the regular Syrian army, had been killed in Aleppo, in northern Syria.

            The circumstances of the death of the general are unclear.

            Hossein Hamdani was the deputy commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) for many years. He was not only responsible for supporting Hezbollah, but in 2008 he became the first official representative of Iran to openly declare that the Islamic Republic is supplying weapons to this Lebanese Shiite group.

    "Duck" from the same series as the fall of "Caliber" in Iran. Wishful thinking. Apparently, General Hamedani acted well in Syria and got a lot of the Americans, so a link to some unknown Iranian TV channel is a source of information for them. It's stupid, like everything they do on the front of the information war ...

    Unfortunately, the general really died sad ... In the south, Aleppo most likely ran into an ambush. A very intelligent man, he took over in Iraq the post of the murdered General Hamid Taqavi - who was shot by a sniper while inspecting a skyscraper near Samarra (a place sacred for Iran and all Shiites, which from the very beginning of fermentation, even before Mosul, was first guarded by "volunteers", and then Guardian Corps). Most recently, Suleimani made him head of the military mission in Syria. A very big loss for Iran and Syria.

    information or misinformation about the death of General IRGC began to spread through American sources. Well, to believe these nonsense is more expensive. And who the pi ..... l about the shooting of a General of North Korea from an anti-aircraft gun ???? But if it’s serious, then all Western publications have tarnished themselves with soooooooo information ... Mr. I just wonder how you can be among this lies and dirt reigning in the media of the West.
