Pictures have emerged of the Commander of the Quds Force affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, General Qasem Soleimani, in Abu Kamal, Syria.

According to the site, the images were released as Iran, Russia and Turkey are preparing to hold a meeting to follow up on their joint operations to complete control over eastern Syria with the help of the Lebanese Hezbollah militias, along with Afghan Fatemiyoun brigades which are funded and used by Tehran.

“His presence underscores the importance of the offensive in eastern Syria,” Long War Journal reported.
