Iranians killed in Israel’s first attack in Iraq named, buried with military honors

Tehran on Wednesday, July 31, for the first time began naming Iranians killed in what were called “Israeli and United States attacks” in Iraq. The Iranians have never before identified the men killed in Israeli strikes – either in Syria or Iraq. Neither have they directly tied those attacks to the United States.
One Iranian notice lists Abu Alfazi Sarabian, “a senior commander of the Al Qods Brigades of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps,” as having lost his life on July 19 in the Israeli attack on the pro-Iranian 52nd Brigade of the Hashd Shaabi Iraqi militia at a Badr Brigades base, near the town of Amerli in the province of Salahudin northwest of Baghdad.
According to Western intelligence sources, the base was struck by three Israel Harop explosive drones, ferried by Israeli Air Force F-16 fighter bombers through Jordan’s air space up to the Iraqi town of Ar-Rutbah. From there, the drones were launched against their target.

Iraqi sources report that the Iranian officer Sarabian died in an explosion in an area used to store solid fuel for missiles, without explaining what a senior Iranian officer was doing there, or which missiles required solid fuel. DEBKAfile’s military sources interpret the Iraqi disclosure as tantamount to corroboration of the function of the Badr Brigades base as hosting IRGC Iranian ballistic missiles which are powered by solid fuel.
All the Iranian victims of the Israeli attack were described as being granted full honors at military ceremonies in Tehran, before being flown for burial directly to their home towns. Abu Alfazi Sarabian’s remains were carried to Kermanshah.

      IRGC must Stays in Iran As they Die & Buried in Other Lands. The Iranian Shiia Regime Can’t Afford Proxies since Proxies Won’t Die for Ayatollahs Anymore Either! Why IRGC is Doomed Either Way! D.O.A. & D.B.W. Dead On Arrival & Done By Women!

          Martyrdom is an Honor for every Shia Believer! If you don’t long for Martyrdom in a battlefield against an infidel you are a fake shia. The more we die the more we come. Quran asks Jews, if you are a true believer then seek Martyrdom! But Allah knows they are cowards and don’t have conviction of their faith.
          Anyways, Imam Khomeini ordered an army of 20 million soldiers for the final battle to contribute towards the ultimate army of 200 million soldiers.
          Time has come as Iran has over 20 million able body trained men ready to lay down their lives for the promise of victory!

      The only Occupation IRGC has Occupied is Absorbing The Reality of Fate Plotting Next Future Dark Move, becoming very Bitter now? IRGC Brought up under Ayatollahs once had Plans to Buy Houses but suddenly everything is changing into a New Shock & Awe! Surely the IRGC would be Tougher, But Never Fight & Ashamed being Wiped Away as just a Memory. Remember, Hussein’s Republican Guard Corp Ending in Kuwait & Iraq, Dead, Buried, Running?

      IRGC did well to carry the bodies in body-bags and speed bury them in coffins. But why the trouble to find body-bags and coffins after the fact, when the burial was so obviously foreseeable?

      The error general Salami often does is not to deploy personal coffins that could have also possibly save IRGC lives, but for sure prevent the rush to bring the coffins in. His is sending his Iranian guards people out of Iran completely WITHOUT personal coffins or as a minimum with personal Kevlar body-bags.

      Where could his Iranian guards find a snake hole to hide fast when the IAF pilots start to look from above to the guards military base? With a personal coffin handy right under the bed or a body-bag in the rucksack the situation changes a lot. In just a second the guard jumps in and it is relatively safe. This should give confidence to the troops and it is good for the morale. Plus, it is dual-purpose, just in case, which often arrives just as seen here with the officers sleeping on solid fuel.

      In conclusion, provide dedicated coffins to Iranian personnel and ban sleeping on solid fuel, let them sleep only in their own beds, preferably only on Iranian territory.

        Countries afflicted with 12 Blackbeards piracy and Shiite terrorism must expect and plan for permanent full honors military ceremonies.

        The only problem is the deforestation. But, but carefully planing the troops deployment ahead and in function of coffins availability should mitigate the risks.

They Don’t Remember the Iran-Iraq War Deaths but would Equally Glad to be Rid of His Khamenei Regime. It is different Time & the Elderly Iranians Families Still Recall A Million Deaths with Wounded!

            Ummmm, your numbers indicate almost 130,000,000 population. The number I stated was rounded up to the next million. Let’s round down and say 81,000,000 million. That’s a discrepancy of 49,000,000. Oh, and the 81,000,000 number is from 2017.

    It takes more than camo and firearms to make a “military”.
    If the day ever comes when the US gives its (true) military the green light to give Persia an
    IRGC-ectomy, the world will see that the IRGC was nothing but posers all along.
