A commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards has been killed in an air strike at the Iraq-Syria border. The incidence took place sometime between November 28 and 29, confirmed Iraqi security and local militia officials on December 1.
The incidence came just days after Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in Tehran, for which Iran has blamed Israel.
Without elaborating or giving the exact time of the incident, the two officials said that Iran-backed Iraqi paramilitary groups helped retrieve the bodies. However, the identity of the commander could not be identified, who they said was killed along with three other men travelling in a vehicle with them.
