Iran brings home body of top general killed in Syria

Iran is bringing home the body of a top-ranking military officer killed in April in southern Syria, Iranian news agencies reported, at least the second senior Iranian to die there this year while supporting Damascus in the war. Hadi Kajbaf, a major general in the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), was killed near the rebel-held town of Busr al-Harir, about 100 km (60 miles) south of Damascus, the IRGC-linked Tasnim agency reported late on Friday. Three other Iranians were killed alongside Kajbaf including a mid-ranking Shi’ite Muslim cleric, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.
