Source: Fars News

The Iranian media published a posthumous letter of Hossein Hamadani, IRGC commander killed in Syria on October 7, 2015. In the letter, Hamadani remembers that Syria was the first country to recognize the Islamic Republic after the Revolution of 1979. He also added that Hafez al Assad supported Iran during the war against Iraq (giving weapons to Tehran). Speaking about the actual war in Syria, Hamadani said that Bashar al Assad is fighting “in our name”. He also added that, for US, the ending of Syrian support to Hezbollah would be enough to accept Assad. He ended his letter saying that his decision to go in Syria, was taken in “the spirit of Kerbala”.
