BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – The spokesperson for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Ramazan Sharif told reporters on Monday that Israel did not strike any Iranian bases in Syria.

“If the IRGC had had 12 casualties, there should have been funerals in Iran for them over the past 20 days,” Brigadier General Ramazan, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) told reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Tehran on Monday, as reported by the Mehr News Agency.

In response to a question on the latest developments regarding the remaining 7 out of 12 Iranian border guards held hostage in Pakistan, Brigadier General Sharif said that the efforts are continuing to secure their release.

“We hope that through the official and unofficial actions which are underway they will be released as soon as possible,” the IRGC spokesman said.

Israel launched a heavy attack over the Damascus countryside on the night of Sunday, January 20th.

This attack resulted in the destruction of several arms storages and some Syrian military radar sites.

There are some out there who would attribute western/Israeli type strategy with the Iranians…you know…pull out your army and install mercenaries. Similar to those who would attribute Russian actions in a western sort of view (as things they would do). The west is confounded by Russia and so are the Israelis vis a vis Iran. They are running around making up excuses to promote their agenda hoping for a confrontation now, while Russia and Iran buy needed time by not falling for their tricks. Russia and Iran may be out-gunned right now, but for how long? This what scares the… Read more »

Hum, doesn’t Iran pretends having no bases in Syria??? So, by essence, IDF can’t strike inexistent bases and can’t kill IRGC dudes that so neither can have been buried either in Iran or in the Syrian desert 😉 I wouldn’t be too surprised if Iran would end privatise IRGC under another name, so they will be able to use plausible denial, LOL 😉 IDF demolished 4 arms depots that were seen as either IRGC or Hellbollah, 1 Chinese early warning radar (this model is supposed to “see” stealth aircraft, but just to see : can’t target!) and 5 SAM systems.… Read more »

Doesn’t IRGC use a lot of proxies – Afghans, Pakistanis, Iraqis – in Syria? It may be true that no Iranians were killed by the Israelis, but the wording does not rule out that some non-Iranians died. As for the bases, Iran does not strictly speaking have bases in Syria, not like the ones the Americans set up. They have facilities (warehouses and so on), and definitely a military presence, but no areas that they have exclusive control over. It’s all down to semantics, and the Iranians have been very careful with their wording. On a completely different matter, I… Read more »
