Iran: Funeral held for six Iranian soldiers killed in Syria

Thousands of mourners gathered in Tehran, Saturday, to take part in a funeral procession for six soldiers who were killed in northern Syria while fighting alongside Syrian government forces.
The huge procession included members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, who carried the coffins, and the Iranian Armed Forces marching band.
Brigadier General Mohsen Ghajarian was among those killed while fighting so-called Islamic State (former ISIS, ISIL, IS) and other militant groups in Syria.
Iran has said that, while it has sent military advisers to help Assad's forces, the country has no intentions to send combat troops to Syria.
