Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei approved Fallahzadeh’s appointment as deputy commander of the Quds Force based on a proposal from IRGC Commander-in-Chief Hossein Salami to succeed Major General Mohammad Hossein-Zadeh Hejazi, who died on April 19 after a heart attack at the age of 65;

Fallahzadeh was the IRGC’s second-in-command in Syria, and some reports indicate he was the main commander at the battle of Aleppo, which effectively destroyed Syria’s second-largest city.

During the “Astana talks” in Kazakhstan, he sat alongside Hossein Jaberi Asari, the senior assistant to Iran’s foreign minister and the official representative of the Iranian government in discussions concerning Syria’s future. Fallahzadeh himself was introduced to the talks as an advisor to the foreign minister, even though he held no position in the Ministry and was representing paramilitary interests under false pretenses.
