Israel is behind the assassination of Mohammad Reza Zahedi in Damascus

The New York Times quoted Israeli sources as saying that Israel was behind the assassination of Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander Mohammad Reza Zahedi in Syria.
The newspaper explained that the building that was bombed in Damascus was the headquarters of the Revolutionary Guard and not a diplomatic office.


What happened?
– Suspected Israeli warplanes bombed the Iranian embassy in Syria on Monday.
– Tehran said that the bombing claimed the lives of seven military advisors, including three senior commanders.
– The Iranian Revolutionary Guard said in a statement that seven military advisors were killed in the attack, including Mohammad Reza Zahedi, the senior commander of the Iranian Quds Force, the foreign arm of the Revolutionary Guard.
– Iranian official media said that Tehran believes that Zahedi was the target in the attack, in which his deputy and another senior commander were also killed, as well as four others.
According to Iranian media, Zahedi was working as a military advisor in Syria and served as commander of the Quds Force in Lebanon and Syria until 2016.
– Israel has long been targeting Iranian military facilities and other facilities belonging to Tehran’s proxies in Syria.
These strikes increased with Israel launching a military campaign against the Hamas movement.
This is the first time that the embassy compound itself has been bombed.
– Israel does not usually comment on attacks launched by its forces in Syria.
In response to a question about the airstrike in Syria today, an Israeli army spokesman said, “We do not comment on reports in foreign media.”
