Iranian media reports several IRGC members were killed 18JAN15 in the Israeli helicopter strike at Quneitra, Syria that also took the lives of several Hezbollah fighters.
Iranian media identifies Allahdadi as a "retired" IRGC commander engaged as an intelligence chief in Syria. He and his fellow IRGC were attacked while their convoy was enroute from Lebanon to Syria.
Brigadier General 2C Allahdadi's past service experience included commander of the IRGC in Yazd province.
Iranian depiction is expected to portray the helicopter strike as further evidence of Israeli indirect support of ISIL and Al-Qaeda linked forces, against the Iran-led coalition supporting the Syrian Arab Republic.
