Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Retrieved Remains Of Five Of Its Members Who Were Killed In Syria

On July 31, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) announced that it had retrieved the remains of five of its members who were killed while fighting in Syria around eight years ago.

In a statement, the IRGC said that the remains were found near the town of Khan Tuman in the southwestern countryside of Aleppo. The remains belonged to General Abdullah Eskandari, General Rahim Kabuli, Mustafa Tash Moussa, Mohammad Amin Karimian and Abbas Asamieh from the Iranian provinces of Mazandaran, Alborz and Fars. According to the guards, DNA tests helped identify the remains.

General Eskandari was beheaded by ISIS terrorists near Khan Tuman back in 2014. How exactly the other four IRGC members were killed remains unclear.

The IRGC described the late officers and soldiers as “defenders of the shrines,” an honorary title usually given to veterans of the Syrian war.

According to the guards, the remains will be sent to the holy Shiite city of Mashhad, before being buried in their respective hometowns by their families.

Khan Tuman was one of the hottest fronts around Aleppo city. The IRGC was heavily active on this front against ISIS, the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front and other terrorist groups. In 2020, Syrian government forces imposed full control over the town with direct support from the guards.

The IRGC remains one of the main backers of Syrian government forces. To this day, the guards maintain a fairly large presence in Aleppo, especially along the front with Turkish forces in the governorate’s northern countryside.
