A leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, was killed on Wednesday in Syria during the fighting in Daraa, and thus the number has risen to three leaders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards during a period not exceeding a month.

The Iranian media reported the killing of a colonel in al-Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, "Mustafa Zal Nejad" during the fighting in Syria, but without specifying the place of his death, and merely that the cause of his death battles against "insurgents."

 The killed Colonel "Nejad" is from Amel city in the province of Mazindan northern Iran, and was a one of the close military advisors to the commander of al-Quds Force, "Qassem Soleimani."

It is worth mentioning that two senior leaders of the Revolutionary Guards were killed "Mehdi Naimany from Imam Ali Division and Gen. Gholam Hossein Qalizadeh."

It should be noted that Eldorar Network got a statistic showing the number of the Syrian regime killed soldiers since the start of the fighting in Deraa days ago where the death toll reached 90 element including officers.
