Funeral Held for Commandos Killed in Syria

Four commandos of the Iranian Army’s Special Forces, who were martyred during an advisory mission in Syria’s Aleppo, were laid to rest on Tuesday.
The elite Iranian troops served in the Army’s Brigade 65, known as the Nohed Brigade or green berets, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Speaking to Tasnim News Agency on the sidelines of the funeral service in Tehran, Army Commander Lieutenant General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said the force’s advisers are vigorously helping Syria along with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ Qods Force advisers.
According to the commander, the four were killed in a large raid launched by thousands of Al-Nusra Front militants and other terrorist groups south of Aleppo.
“During the clashes that led to the martyrdom of the four commandos, the terrorists suffered heavy casualties such that 200 militants were killed and a number of tanks and personnel carriers of the Al-Nusra Front were destroyed,” he said.
Pourdastan noted that the army has not deployed a particular unit to Syria, but a number of advisers from different units, including the Brigade 65, have been dispatched to the Arab country.
