Forces from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have lost 54 military personnel, including three high ranked officers, while supporting Bashar al-Assad’s regime forces against the Syrian opposition.
On Oct. 23, Fars News Agency had quoted General Ramazan Sharif, spokesman of the Revolutionary Guards, as saying that “Iran increased the number of its soldiers in the region” as part of a new ground offensive in Syria.
