Tens of thousands of mourners have poured out onto the streets of Tehran to pay their respects to two military advisers of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), who lost their lives in an Israeli airstrike near the Syrian capital Damascus last week.
The massive ceremony started in the Iranian capital city on Tuesday morning, with people carrying the coffins of Milad Heidari and Meqdad Mehqani, draped with the Iranian flag, en route from iconic Imam Hussein Square to Shuhada Square.
Chief Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami, Commander of the IRGC Quds Force Brigadier General Esmail Qa’ani, and many other high-ranking Iranian officials were in attendance.
The Iranian IRGC military advisers were martyred in Friday’s aerial assaults conducted by Israel on the suburbs of Damascus.
Heidari, a 32-year-old father of two, was from Kurdistan Province. He was living in Tehran’s Qarchak county. Mehqani, 31, later died of the wounds he sustained during the Israeli attack. He was from Golestan Province and had a two-year-old son.
