There have been several reports from the southern Aleppo front regarding the alleged death of Major General Qassem Suleimani; however, fighters from the Iraqi paramilitary unit “Harakat Al-Nujaba” released a video today from the battlefront confirming he is both alive and well.
Major General Qassem Suleimani is the renowned commander of the Al-Quds Force (the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) that has traveled to several countries in the Middle East to oversee military operations against terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda (Jabhat Al-Nusra in Syria) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).
Due to his popularity, Major General Suleimani has become the victim of several falsified stories that allude to him being severely wounded or dead, despite no confirmation from the IRGC or the Iranian Government.
The site in southern Aleppo that is displayed in the video footage provided by Harakat Al-Nujaba could not be determined; however, it is most likely at the outskirts of Al-Zorba, where Harakat Al-Nujaba and Hezbollah are attempting to advance past the Islamist rebel defenses.
Al-Masdar News has attempted to reach the primary contact of Harakat Al-Nujaba regarding the setting of the video, but the source from the Iraqi paramilitary unit was unavailable to answer questions.
