Iran Martyrs Foundation extends condolences on Hojjaji martyrdom

Tehran, Aug 12, Head of Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs in a message expressed condolences over beheading of the Iranian military advisor Mohsen Hojjaji by Daesh terrorist group in Syria.

The criminal act once again showed the abhorrent nature of terrorist groups, Mohammad Ali Shahidi said.

He condoled with the bereaved family of Mohsen Hojjaji.

Following a US strike against the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (Hashd al-Shaabi), Daesh seized the opportunity to attack the Syrian troops deployed in the borders with Iraq in which Mohsen Hojjaji, an Iranian military advisor was taken hostage by the terrorist group elements and beheaded later on camera.

Meanwhile, Quds Force Commander Major General Qasem Soleimani in reaction to Daesh brutal act vowed to clean the region from the terrorist group elements.

'The crime which has happened for several times against the Sunni and Shia Muslims in the region will only increase the awareness and unity of Muslim people against the sinister phenomenon [of terrorism],' Major General Soleimani noted.
