According to the reports, the burial ceremonies of these mercenaries were held in villages and cities of Iran. It is noteworthy that Fatemiyoun Division is a militant force affiliated with the terrorist Qods Force and it members Afghan Shiites. This militant group fights in the Syrian civil war in favor of Assad and against his opposers. A young man named Seyed Mahdi is currently the commander of this Afghan militant group.
