This would not be the first time that the Israeli occupation entity murders IRGC members in Syria, who are working as advisors for the Syrian Arab Army combating terrorist groups, on top of which is ISIS.
Earlier in March this year, the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps announced that two Iranian soldiers were killed in an Israeli attack in the vicinity of Damascus.
"There is no doubt that the Israeli occupation will pay for this crime," the IRGC said in a statement.
Following the Israeli aggression, the IRGC officially announced a few days later the targeting of an Israeli "strategic center" in Iraq with missiles.
According to an IRGC statement, a "strategic center for conspiracy and mischiefs of the Zionists was targeted by powerful precision missiles fired by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps," following the Israeli occupation's crimes.
The IRGC warned that the repetition of any evil acts by "Israel" will be faced by "harsh, decisive, and destructive responses."
