Israeli Forces Kill Top Iranian Commander in Syria

An Israeli airstrike has killed Iranian Brigadier General Seyyed Razi Mousavi on Monday Dec. 25 where he was deployed as a military advisor to the country. 

Mousavi was actively involved in the fight against ISIS in Syria during his long-term participation in fighting against terrorism across West Africa. 

Iran has heavily condemned the killing, vowing to make the Israeli regime “pay the price,” calling the attack a “criminal missile attack by the fake and child-killing Zionist regime.”

The Iranian Brigadier was assassinated near the Syrian capital, where Israeli airstrikes targeted the vicinity of the Sayyida Zainab area in Damascus where the shrine of Prophet Mohammed’s (P) grand-daughter is located. 

Mousavi was revered as one of the most senior and prominent commanders of the Qu.ds Force, and was reportedly one of the commanders who was entrusted with the “Syrian File.”

Iranian Media also hailed him as responsible for coordinating the military alliance between Syria and Iran. Iranian officials confirmed that he was in charge of “providing “logistical support to the axis of resistance in Syria.”

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi stated that Mousavi’s killing was a sign of Israel’s “frustration, helplessness and incapacity.”

Mousavi was known to survive multiple assassination attempts over the past years. 

According to Israeli media, the Israeli Air Force has carried out more than a thousand airstrikes in the last five years.
