Syrian civil war
In circa 2012, he was asked by previous Major General Qasem Soleimani to serve in Syrian Civil War. Allahdadi had traveled to Syria to "provide consultation" and was an adviser to the Syrian army. He was killed in January 2015 Mazraat Amal incident, alongside six Hezbollah Fighters. Following his death, the Revolutionary Guard released a statement saying "Zionists should await devastating thunder of the IRGC" and Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a "warning letter" to Israel via United States.
