Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said on Sunday the number of its officers killed in recent Israeli attacks on Syria’s capital Damascus rose to two.
In a statement published by the IRGC’s media arm Sepah News, the victim was identified as Meqdad Mahqani Jafarabadi, an IRGC officer serving as a military adviser in Syria.
The other officer earlier confirmed died in one of the strikes was Milad Heidari, also a military adviser.
Israel has launched two missile attacks on sites in Damascus since Thursday, according to Syrian national TV.
The IRGC strongly condemned the Israeli missile attacks, saying they violated the sovereignty and territorial integrity of an independent Arab country.
The IRGC stressed that the Israeli “crimes will not go unanswered and Israel will be atoned for them.”
