Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force commander, Brigadier General Esmail Ghaani, had paid a new visit to Syria, the Tasnim News Agency reported on June 27.

According to the Iranian news agency, Ghanni visited the city of al-Bukamal in the east of Deir Ezzor governorate a few days ago. The commander inspected areas where the operations against ISIS remnants are conducted.

During the visit, the senior IRGC commander gave a speech. He accused the U.S. and Israel of founding and supporting ISIS, calling them “two criminal regimes, whose plots are to be put to an end.”

Ghaani succeeded former Quds Force commander Brig. Gen. Qassam Soleimani, who was assassinated by the U.S. in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, on January 3.

Last March, Ghanni paid his first visit to Syria, where he inspected the frontlines with Turkish forces in the Western countryside of Aleppo.

Ghanni’s visit appears to be meant to restate Iran’s presence in the city of al-Baukamal, which is located on the Syrian-Iraqi border. Israel carried out a series of attacks on Iranian positions near the city earlier this year.
