Report: 4 Iranian commandos killed in Syria

Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency is reporting that four members of the Iranian Special Forces were killed in Syria while fighting against the Islamic State group.

The Tasnim news agency, which is considered close to the Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards, reports the deaths but does not elaborate on the circumstances.

A number of Iranian soldiers have been killed in Syria, including high-ranking officers.

Iran is a key ally of the Assad regime and has provided military and financial support throughout the five-year civil war.
