Women and girls in two towns near the Syrian city of Aleppo have undergone military training in a course named after a senior Iranian general who recently lost his life in an advisory mission in the Arab country in the battle against the Takfiri terrorist groups.

Female residents of the Syrian towns of al-Zahraa and Nubl, located in northwest of Aleppo, have taken part in a course to receive the basic military training in defense of their towns against the Takfiri terrorists.

The course is named “Martyr General Hossein Hamedani” to commemorate the Iranian general’s dedication to breaking the siege of al-Zahraa and Nubl, which had been besieged by the Takfiri militants for more than four years.

Back on October 8, senior IRGC commander Major General Hamedani was martyred while in an advisory mission in Syria.

A one-time commander during the 8-year Iraqi imposed war on Iran in the 1980s, Hamedani was a senior military advisor who played a decisive role in the protection of the holy shrine of Sayyida Zeinab (AS) against terrorist attacks.

The shrine of Sayyida Zeinab, a sister of the third Shiite Imam (AS), is located in Damascus.

Iran, a close ally of Syria, has been supporting the legitimate Syrian government in the fight against terrorists.

Tehran has already made it clear that its assistance to Syria is confined to consultation and advisory help.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with Takfiri terrorists from various groups, including the ISIL, currently controlling parts of it.

According to the United Nations, more than 240,000 people have been killed and one million wounded during the conflicts.
