Iranian-Affiliated Commander Killed In Drone Strike Near Syrian-Iraqi Border: Monitoring Group

An Iranian-affiliated commander was killed as a result of a drone strike on the eastern Syrian governorate of Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on April 29.

The strike targeted a house and military vehicle in the town of al-Sayyal, which is located around 20 km to the north of the al-Bukamal border crossing with Iraq.

“The attack resulted in the death of a commander of a non-Syrian nationality and the injury of five militiamen,” the SOHR’s report reads.

According to the London-based monitoring group, the slain commander was serving in the ranks of “Liwa Fatemiyoun,” an Afghan group formed in 2014.

Liwa Fatemiyoun is funded, trained, and equipped by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Today, the group is mainly active in Syria’s central and eastern regions. 10,000 to 20,000 fighters are reportedly in service with this Afghan group.

The SOHR’s claims are yet to be confirmed by an independent source. Locals and pro-government sources didn’t report any strike on Deir Ezzor on April 29th, or in the few days before.

These claims may be nothing but a propaganda stunt meant to exaggerate Iran’s role in Deir Ezzor as well as to present a distorted image of the situation in the government-held part of the governorate. Nevertheless, it is important to note that both Israel and the US have targeted Iranian forces in Deir Ezzor in the past.

        So you have nothing to worry about Emad.

        1. Emad Irani says:

          no I don’t because barking dogs don’t bite. Like I said, if you could do something you would do it 20 years ago, not now anymore

          1. <> says:

            I don’t think you understand Emad, or you just don’t know how it works here. No matter who is the DM, in the end when it comes to starting a war there is only one guy who decided – the PM. Bibi is a coward, you think we Israelis are scared of you or you proxies? lol you’ve got us all wrong. Just watch the show, remember the names Bennet and Lapid.

          2. Emad Irani says:

            dude there are strategists who analyze the situation and the outcome of that and deep state decision makers. How many different PMs did you have in the last 43 years? How many US presidents changed? How many wars took place in the region? No country can attack Iran because they know about non-public Iranian missile and nuke capability. You are just another trash which they will use and throw away. You are not a strategist nor a you have enough know-how about the stuff :) I am watching your show for 20 years, only barking. Soon Iran will have an IRGC president and he announced already 93% enrichment. You are doomed

          3. <> says:

            I am not a prohpet Emad, just an IDF reservist with alot of heart. I don’t call the shots even though I wish I could have changed our policy, just follow the orders. Again, if you are so strong then tiny weak Israel is not a problem for you, so relax.

          4. Emad Irani says:

            I said it, a trash for the decision makers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TkKm2eEV1A

            I didn’t said which country is strong or weak, I am a rationalist, because of my education and my know-how I analyze simple things and come to a conclusion. And this is: No country will/can start a war against Iran, the times of “Regime Changes” are over and Israel is not anymore the only power in the region, very simple.

            Look at the geopolitical progress and advance of every country in the region Iran, Turkey, Israel and Saudi Arabia, you will realize what I am saying…

          5. <> says:

            His case is a famous one, and every soldier including reservists like me know that the army doesn’t treat PTSD soldiers. So most of us don’t try to fight the system, we follow the orders even if it means we will die during combat because that is what brought us to be fighters in the first place – the will to give to the country we love. The army is working to change that policy, now after another soldier ignited himself.

            It’s guys like us that keep this country alive, not the dirty F politicians and I don’t fight for them. I fight so Israeli kids won’t live under mortars and rockets attacks, and I will support any politician who gives us the greenlight to end those Jihadists once and for all. I admit I myself have sometimes bad dreams, as it come and go. But I swore to myself, I will make them pay for every Isreali they have killed and you know what is my strongest motive? HATE.


          6. Emad Irani says:

            hahaha calm down rambo, we don’t kill children like you. We don’t care about civilian although in a fake country like Israhell that 40-45% of the entire adult population is either active military personnel or on reserve (750000 ppl) AND the rest are ex-military (above 40 years old) there is nothing called “civilian”… If you forcefully enter other people’s homes, take whatever they have then kick them out and kill them, you’re not a “civilian”. But again we don’t care about these. We have precision guided weapons that can hit sensitive targets and regions, we don’t have to bomb an entire city. If you cross the lines, there will be more fire. At the end, if you die no one will even remember you except your own family. Sad story but true. “The F politicians” you mentioned have control and power, if they feel threat they will throw you away.

            Soon you all have to go back to your real roots

          7. The Objective says:

            “hahaha calm down rambo, we don’t kill children like you. We don’t care about civilian ”
            I wish what you said were true. Unfortunately, Shiites are the biggest bullies of defenseless civilians. I’m sure if you were to quit bullying civilians, you’ll develop some bravery to make America pay for killing several dozens of your men in Iraq and Syria since 2019.

          8. farbat says:

            wow are you miserable XD

          9. farbat says:

            did we beat your daesh to badly were you so afraid that you still are this miserable XD

          10. farbat says:

            you are defeated what nonsense do you talk you start to “bully” meaning headchop and we beat you and now you whine

          11. Emad Irani says:

            empty talks, I know it hurts after losing Syria and Iraq. But I think US bases are bombed every week with rockets, suicide drones and mortals… You think Iran is Turkey after Mavi Marvara incident to forget the story? US will be kicked out of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and you can imagine what is the next

          12. The Objective says:

            I admire your motivation and dedication to serving your country. If most of the Israeli soldiers have your kind of motivation, then I have no doubt you’ll win against the Shiites. Throughout history, they talk more than they can do, but when push comes to shove you’ll notice their cowardice. Imagine what would have happened if America had killed a Taliban general and Taliban had half of Iran’s missile. Believe me the whole region would be ignited and the U.S will find itself in an intense bloody fight for the first few months at least.
            The U.S has been bombing these Shiite militias in Iraq with almost zero consequences to American forces despite U.S forces deployed within range of the militias’ missiles. Biden recently killed dozens of them and not a single U.S soldier died as a result. I don’t see how they are gonna. seems like they fear death. I mean, this is beyond cowardice. Your lives get wasted with no consequences? You don’t wanna die and you want to defeat the U.S?
            Learn from the Taliban and the Turks who fought in Galipoli. If you guys can quit oppressing civilians, I’m sure you’ll develop some bravery and willingness to retaliate for your dead. From my experience, soldiers who bully civilians are always cowards. Heroes don’t bully the weak.

          13. farbat says:

            our enemies know we dont talk empty they have way to many wounds to think that was the case

          14. farbat says:

            you are quite defeated to admire the pathetic zionists and you wahabis wonder why we beat you up but please admire them they are in their best and at their worst time during their death they are suffering right now this tiny soon to be wiped out usurper project

          15. <> says:

            Exactly Obejctive,and I disregard all the claims here as if we kill civlians on purpose. Mistakes happen during a war, but in no way me or my friends to service used our weapons to hurt innocent people in Gaza. The same as I am against Hamas killing innocent Israelis, I am against it from our side aswell. Those Shias will eventually feel our true power, we still have an unfinished business from 2006.
            As for me, been in active service during both 2006 and 2008 conflicts, and as a reservist in 2014. Been in the front each time, and I would do it again if it protects my people. I also stated it here before, in my view Israel, Turkey Egypt, UAE and KSA should all work together.

          16. tzatz says:

            Kol ha Kavod … the TRUTH

          17. The Objective says:

            Your claim that no country would start a war with Iran might have convinced me but for two reasons:
            1) Iran doesn’t dare go nuclear openly
            2) Iran is negotiating another JCPOA despite losing hundreds of billions to unjustified sanctions, and the killing of Soleimani. Remember this happened at a time Iran was largely in compliance of the deal.

            These are not the actions of a country which feels confident it’s beyond attack. These are the actions a country which feels vulnerable and is employing both restraint and diplomatic opportunities to ward off and an attack.

            Imagine what North Korea or Russia would have done in Iran’s place. They’ll avenge the death of their General by killing a U.S general within days of that attack, and they would shred the nuclear deal the very day Trump pulled out. Iran obviously won’t dare such steps because it’s still not strong enough to fully deter a U.S attack.

          18. Emad Irani says:

            First of all there is not another JCPOA, all negotiations are about the JCPOA from 2015, nothing more. Beside that JCPOA is limited to the country’s nuclear agency, IRGC has its own Nuclear Program working together with North Korea. Iran doesn’t need to go openly for it as long as no country dares to attack Iran.

            Killing of Soleimani or another person doesn’t have any influence on Irans path wherever it is. This is because of IRGCs very deep and complex structure. Iranian enemy attacks are only limited to sabotage or assassinating, not open war like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen and etc…

            In 2017 about 100 Russian combat soldiers got killed by US air strikes in Deir ez Zour, a high ranking Russian commander (Valery Asapov) was mysteriously killed by “ISIS” (there are needs for intelligence and information)… and Russia did nothing, not what you claimed

            Last time I said already to you, if you don’t have any clue about military/policy stuff don’t talk about it

          19. tzatz says:

            Rational EXCEPT the Mullah / IRGC Revolutionary Regime isn’t that rational …

            Iran has become a MILITARY DICTATORSHIP … the Mullah leader will be replaced by an IRGC appointee … and revolution is on their mind … building a World of Shiite Islam is the goal … don’t laugh they could topple the Arabs and then Israel if left alone …

          20. farbat says:

            interesting video just shows what iam saying about these fools they are playing people as tools in a cruel game of theirs and they are collapsing and suprised about flesh giving in to metal and fire and here comes there biggest loss the believe that they are stronger than metal when they are just weak and easily broken

          21. farbat says:

            iran is totally ready to accept small defeats for the bigger win but they are not ready to give into small defeats even which is going to make a big defeat utterly annihilating to their whole existence and like cockroaches they will be all gone when the fires light shines on them

          24. farbat says:

            they can have 1000 airplanes ready to do what they ever want to do they still wont survive 1 day

          25. <> says:

            We will end up in the grave Rafik, I will just make sure to send your terrorsitic animals there first.

          26. Ricky Miller says:

            If you are really an IDF reservist you wouldn’t be permitted to comment about Israeli foreign policy here. Poser.

          27. The Objective says:

            Presidents don’t make the real decisions in Iran. Iran’s goals is to win without fighting. all the war preparations has two important purposes: to deter war and regime survival in case of war. Iran is not looking to bomb Israel any day. All the rhetoric is aimed at gaining the approval of Sunni Muslims around the world and positioning Iran as leader of the Islamic world. But this deception failed and Erdogan and Turkey took that position instead. We now take Iran’s threats and hot air for what it is: hot air. After the muted response to Soleimani’s killing, their is no repairing of the damage to Iran’s prestige anytime soon.
            The idea is for Iran to get conventionally very strong to the point that no one would attack it for any reason. then Iran will publicly build nukes and no one dares to attack. Unfortunately, the mullahs let their mouths and temper get the better of them and they overblew their threats. Now America and Israel will never take their sights off Iran and will continue covert efforts to overthrow the regime regardless of a nuclear deal.

          28. Emad Irani says:

            Times of Regime Changes are over, not even Syria was accomplished. US knows about hidden Nuke capability as I said Iran has 2 different Nuke programs. Iran doesn’t care about Sunni countries because they are the last problem, they couldn’t even finish Yemen, only a bunch of loosers and Western puppets.

            Is Irans missile program public? IRGC no, Space Agency yes. Is Irans nuke program public? Again IRGC no, government owned Nuclear agency yes.

            There are IRGC elites for decision making but you will never learn that, just like you didn’t learned about the fail in Syria. False calculation are in favor of Iran, remember that. Changing sides like Turkey and Saudi Satania are doing is the same Saddam and Gaddafi did

    3. Free man says:

      Two days ago, after the Russian visit to Israel, I wrote:: “I wonder what Iranian targets will be bombed in the coming days in Syria.”
      For such bombing you need extremely accurate intelligence.

    4. chris chuba says:

      Serious question, how was this man a threat to Israel?
      ISIS is resurging in this exact place in Syria where Israel assassinated him. The SOHR (no friend of Assad) claims that ISIS has killed over 1,000 ‘Regime and Iranian backed fighters in the past 2yrs’ https://www.syriahr.com/en/198297/
      This guy was from Afghanistan, he doesn’t give a flip about Israel, all he cares about is fighting ISIS and then going back home. Do you think he and his forces are going to storm the Golan Heights and then flood into the Jordon valley or something. You are kicking Syria in the teeth when they are down.

      1. <> says:

        They published a video 2 or 3 years ago when they came closer to the Golan area, saying when the time comes they will try to invade Israeli posts and kill Israelis. Yeah, the same Afghans you said that don’t care about Israel. I don’t know where to find it, SF even published it here.

    5. Rhodium 10 says:

      Hamas launch rockets along many years and Israel cannot avoid it!….yesterday 44 Zionist killed themselves..

    6. Ricky Miller says:

      Hezbollah has tens of thousands of missiles with your names on them. At least the names of Israeli military bases and garrison towns. I’m not engaging in hyperbole by saying tens of thousands.

  3. Faisal al Al-Mahdi of Iraq says:

    To the Blood thirsty people commenting wishing for war below.
    The second seal of Revelation is war, of which Christ (AS) says, And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars, 1st seal is corona and its underway.
    Allah is intervening in humanity and has returned 313 prophets to Earth with Imam Mahid (AS), saviour of Earth. If Humanity turns to the prophets and seek peace, then Gods punishment will ease, it is the end of the satanic era, all praise to God. This is the end of zionism, satanism, capitalism, racism, slavery, mind control and other inflictions on humanity. wake up people. seek peace and repent.
    May God have mercy on the assasinated Volunteers, many whom join to do good in the world and resist the satanic forces of Zionism and America the anti christ

    1. The Objective says:

      This is your deviant and heretical Shiite concept. Your Mahdi is not the Muslim Mahdi the prophet foretold about. Your Mahdi increasingly resembles the Dajjal, because we see from authentic Hadiths that Dajjal is in occultation. Your Mahdi will not be born. He’s in occultation. Again, the Ahdiths warn us that the Dajjal will emerge from Khorasan in Iran. Looking at the Iranian regime and the current situation of Iran, these Ahadiths are becoming reality right in front of our eyes.
      It’s you who need to wake up and follow the true religion of Muhammad (S.A.W) otherwise you’ll oppose the true Mahdi when he emerges and follow the Dajjal after his emergence from occultation as he is going to look more like your Shiite mahdi than the true Mahdi.

    the zionist usurper entity will be wiped out soon they wont be around after 2022 and if they are stupid enough to do this the hard way they will be annihilated 10 of theirs for 1 of ours lets see how well they will do the resistance itself will wipe them out
