A senior commander of the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) was killed on Tuesday in fighting in the north-western Syrian city of Aleppo.

Brigadier General Ahmad Gholami, deputy head of the regime’s so-called IRGC Seyed-o-Shohada Brigade, was killed on August 30, the Fars news agency, affiliated to the IRGC wrote.

Large numbers of senior IRGC commanders have been killed in Syria’s civil war in the past 18 months.

Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said in an interview with the pan-Arab daily Asharq Al-Awsat in April that the mullahs’ regime in Iran would collapse once Syrian dictator Bashar Assad is toppled.

Mrs. Rajavi said that the Iranian regime is founded on three main pillars: obtaining a nuclear bomb, absolute domestic suppression and export of terrorism and extremism abroad.

Mrs. Rajavi pointed out that Tehran’s strategy is based on interference in the internal affairs of other countries, warmongering and export of terrorism; however, the regime’s regional plots failed after the start of the Decisive Storm operation against its proxies.

“If Assad falls out of power in Damascus, then the Iranian regime will evidently follow and collapse in Tehran,” Mrs. Rajavi said.
