Major General Qassem Soleimani is an Iranian Quds force commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, revered by many Shi’a militant groups and designated a supporter of terrorism by Western countries.

He is credited for over seeing many gains made by the Iraqi Army and associated Shi’a militia forces helping to push back IS advances towards Baghdad and other provinces in Iraq previously.

He now is rumoured to be in Syria to allegedly partake in a mass offensive in Aleppo apparently being planned by Russia, Syria and Iran following a pivotal meeting in Moscow in July 2015.
