The commander of Iran's "Emam Reza" armored brigade, IRGC general Mohsen Gajarian was killed in Syria.
According to Fars news agency, the general was killed by "Takfiri terrorists" (Iranian officials refer to extremist Sunni armed groups in Syria and Iraq, including the IS as "Takfiri).
Fars also reported that "at least 13 Iranians were killed in Syria during recent battles and all of them were IRGC members".
The agency said all of the mentioned may have been killed during a new round of Syrian Army's battle to break the siege of two key Shia towns of Nubul and Zahraa in north-western Aleppo.
At least four top commanders of IRGC have been killed in Syria since the beginning of 2015, including Brigadier General Hossein Hamedani who was killed in Syria on Oct. 8.
