An Iranian colonel reported beheaded by Syrian Nusra Front

Iranian sources Wednesday identified a man whose decapitated head appeared on a photo five days ago as Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Col. Mohammad Eskandari. In some reports he is listed as a brigadier general, reportedly killed by the Al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front. Earlier this month, Eskandari was quoted as telling Iranian media that 43 divisions and 138 battalions of the IRGC were fighting in Syria in support of forces loyal to Bashar Assad.
