Volunteer Martyred in Iraq

Volunteer Martyred in Iraq

An Iranian volunteer combatant was killed in Iraq in the fight with terrorists of the self-declared Islamic State (IS).
Mehdi Norouzi was killed on Saturday while defending holy shrines in the Iraqi city of Samarra, Press TV reported.
“Last night (Saturday night), Mehdi Norouzi embraced martyrdom…in a direct fire fight with members of the IS terrorist group,” a statement carried by Fars news agency said on Sunday.  
“He had left for Iraq to defend the holy shrines there and defend the oppressed Iraqi nation against the terrorist mercenaries of IS,” the statement said.
Back in December, a senior Iranian military officer was killed while on an advisory mission in Samarra.
Brigadier General Hamid Taqavi lost his life while conducting the mission in cooperation with the Iraqi army and volunteer forces to counter IS militants in the vicinity of the shrine of the eleventh Shiite Imam Hasan al-Askari (AS).
