An Iranian pilot has been killed  in Iraq, state-run IRNA news agency reported on Saturday. This is the first report by state-run media on military casualty of the Iranian regime during fighting militants in Iraq.

The report said Colonel Shoja’at Alamdari Mourjani was killed last week in Iraqi city of Samera.

His death comes after reports emerged that fighter planes from the Iranian regime have arrived in Iraq to provide air support for Iraq's fight against Sunni militants.

The International Institute for Strategic Studies, based in London, said in a report that a number of Su-25 fighter jets from Iran have arrived in Iraq.

IISS analysts said serial numbers on the Russian-built aircraft from Iran, seen on a video produced by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, correspond with numbers known to be part of the Iranian regime's air force.

The commander of the IRGC in Fars province attended the funeral service held for IRGC Col. Alamdari on Friday in southern city of Shiraz.
