Unidentified IRGC Commander Killed At Syria-Iraq Border: Reuters Report

Click to see full-size image

Between November 28th and 29th, an air strike killed a commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) at the Syria-Iraq border, Reuters reported citing unnamed sources.

Reuters’ report was made based on the claims of unnamed Iraqi security and local militia officials.

The IRGC commander’s identity is also unknown. He was killed alongside three other unnamed individuals who were traveling in the same vehicle.

The vehicle was carrying weapons across the Iraqi border and was hit after it had entered Syrian territory, two Iraqi security officials separately said.

Allegedly members of an “Iran-backed Iraqi paramilitary group” which is likely the Popular Mobilization Units, which are part of the Iraqi Armed Forces, allegedly retrieved the bodies.

The incident came just days after Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in Tehran in a killing that Iran has blamed on Israel.

In the week ending on November 29th, Israel launched air raids against what it called a wide range of Syrian and Iranian targets in Syria. It also signaled it will pursue its policy of striking Iranian targets in the region as U.S. President Donald Trump prepares to leave office.

Dozens of Iran-backed fighters have been killed in Israeli strikes in Syria over the past month, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The US warned Iraq in September to reign in militias and cease attacks in the vicinity of the US Embassy. Baghdad’s Green Zone, where the US and other embassies are located, was hit by rockets again in November.

The Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen TV channel, which is close to the Syrian government and Lebanese Hezbollah, said that trusted sources have denied the assassination of an Iranian commander and three of his bodyguards.

Regardless, other Arab media reports claimed that the commander is (or was) named Muslim Shahdan.

A top-level UAE source told Middle East Eye on November 30th that Iran has sent a warning to the United Arab Emirates in case of a US attack on Iran.

It is unclear if a commander had, in fact, been killed, however, this is an interesting rumor at a time when a top Iranian nuclear scientist was assassinated, as well as there are reports of Trump mulling a sort of “farewell strike” on Iran.

It is a time of escalation, with Israel aggressively striking alleged Iranian targets in Syria, the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, blamed on Israel, as well as other reports of potential aggression against Tehran.

Frankly, this is totally fake news and rejected by Iran and other sources and is part of the US and Zionist psy-ops to bait Iran. Not going to work.

The Objective

Or it could be Iran denying it to limit the humiliation of not having the will to respond. The U.S labelled IRGC terrorist. I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump launches an intense campaign of assassination of Iranian military and even civilian leaders.

Frank

Wahabbi or Zionist? Lot of invective against Iran.

Rhodium 10

Iran always respond… remember 2 US bases, Global Hawk, British petrol vessel captured….”the accident of the CIA bombardier plane in Afganistan”…where accord US sources only 2 crew member were onboard while witness told that 5 corpses were lying until US forces recovered them….

The Objective

Then why are your leaders still raving about revenge?

Rhodium 10

Because there many options and different targets to hit…even there will be leaders who want the revenge just in the moment that Trump leave the presidency in a somekind of Gift from Iran to Trump friend ….

Rafik Chauhan

IF hezbollah news channel has deniand . it means all are fake news.

Proud Hindu

Tere jaise namard logo ki adaat hai chupke marne ki. Tere master ko bol kabhi saamne Ake lade. waqt Ayega Jaha chupne ke jagha bhi nahi milegi tere jaise Dalal ko. HAve patince and wait for the response. Bcuz EVen US dint have guts to attack iran when they fired missile at US base and made 100s of US soldier go mad and mental illeness.

The Objective

I don’t believe them. I think they are hiding their death so that there is no obligation to retaliate. We’ll know the truth in the coming weeks. But this news have circulated reliable reporting sources.

Lone Ranger

CIAMOSSADisis really pushing for a last second World war….

The Objective

No body will fight a world war over you Iranians. Get real!

tzatz

???

Lone Ranger

Im not Iranian.
They thought the same about Austria before WWI…
If Iran falls Russia and China are next, they wont allow that cost it what it will.
Never start a war you cant finish and you wont be able to finish this one, we both know that…

tzatz

Russia and China?

They’ll stay away …. Iran has not friends’ … hello?

Well … maybe Merkel … ROTFL

Lone Ranger

Wrong.
Iran is even more important strategically than Syria.
Russia and China is already arming them with state of the art tech.
They have no other choice, Iran cant fall to zionazis and the U.S.
Iran has good relations with many countries.
Russia, China, Iraq, Syria India thats 3+billion people.
U.S. and Israel are the one with no friends only vassals and slavesm

tzatz

Israel won’t be standing still either sluggo

Russia/China state of the art technology?

Israel has great relations with Russia / China / India … hello?

Checkmate

Lone Ranger

Israel missile tech is good but behind that of Russia and China both in numbers and tech.
Good relations till a point…
Neither Russia nor China will sacrafice their national Security in favor of Israel.
They didn’t sacraficed it in Syria and they certainly wont sacrafice it in Iran.
Sorry to dissapoint you but thats just a fact and no ammount of kosher magic wand waving will change that.
Have a nice day ?

tzatz

Russian / Chinese tech are World class … top of the class

Russia / China will not go to war for Iran … Russia has oil and there’s plenty to buy elsewhere

Russia saved Syria but did NOT stop Israel’s assault on the IRGC/Shia Brigades/Hezbollah inside Syria … hello?

Iran’s vile Mullah Police State is going down …

Lone Ranger

Wishful thinking Shlomo.
Like I said China and Russia are friendly to a point not beyond.
They wont allow the U.S. to get into a strike position or pressure them.
Bye.

tzatz

Whose threatening China or Russia …. hello?

That’s MAD

Lone Ranger

The U.S/deep state., if you havent noticed.

tzatz

MAD …. if you haven’t noticed

Lone Ranger

U.S. thinks it can pull it off, read Pentagon plans, look at missile deployments.
Why do you think Russia developed hypersonic cruise missiles and new ICBMs and new hypersonic MIRVs, they had enough firepower but they noticed the U.S. creeping up trying to tip the status quo to their favor.
Russia didnt develop these weapons only to show off, its a major deterrence, telling the U.S. dont even think about it because we can destroy you anytime we see it fit.
Putin told the new Russian military doctrin, Russia wont wait till a first strike happens, if they see they U.S will attack mainland Russia or a key ally, Russia will strike with full force before it could happen.
MAD only works if here is parity, Russia made sure the ballance is restored, non the less the U.S. keeps pushing its luck every day.

tzatz

MAD …. Russia / China / USA are not going to war against each other

China & US are economic rivals ….

Russia is a fading power …

HiaNd

As nuke “power” China is officially having ridiculous 300 warheads….even if they having double of that number that is still nothing comparing to US.

So no MAD in China at all.
While Russia is nuke Super Power even comparing to US.
US ICBM nukes are 40+years old = totally outdated.
While Russia is churning every few years new models of strategic nukes ICBM,SLBM…Yars, Sarmat, Bulava, Hyper-sonic glider and 100 megaton Status 6

tzatz

Nuclear War is NOT winnable … hello?

Russia is a fading power … population demographics are destiny … eh?

MAD has worked well so far …

I expect Putin wants to live as long a life as possible … Xi as well …

BUT … thanks for the response

Stay Safe

population? destiny—-did you learn this from Malthus…USA/canada a nation of puritanical lower middle class proles, obese, stupefied automatons reduced to sex w mobile phones—per David Riesman, “over-conformist semi-automatons”

Canada still beats Russia in hockey consistently … ALTHOUGH I love Russian individual players including
Valeri Kharlamov and Alex Ovetchkin among many others

Russians play hockey well … I respect them

cechas vodobenikov

backwards idiot—Russia vast reserves, thriving economy…USA a plywood/BLM/LGBT rotting empire that will collapse in less than 10 years per Johan Galtung…the cultural desert=north amerika has extraordinary debt—canada, a US colony
“the people of north amerika accept a level of ugliness in their daily lives nearly without precedent in the history of western civilization”. Yuri Bezmenov

Oil & Gas …. sure they’ve got VAST reserves … no doubt

Thriving economy? lol

The West is the engine running the World’s economy …. Americans make $$$ and spend it … driving the World economy

Ugliness? Yuri has ‘macular degeneration’ …. eh?

next

tzatz

The US?

Lone Ranger

Whom else?
China and Russia isnt worried about Israel, they are worried about the U.S.

cechas vodobenikov

false—your ignorance is expected—Russia possesses far more than oil and gas…Israel doesn’t attack Syria/Iran. they send f16’s to attack sand dunes and declare victory

tzatz

REMIND ME …. what does Russia make that the whole world needs …. hello?

cechas vodobenikov

simpletons all lose at chess

tzatz

Jews are pretty good at chess …. Bobby Fisher … Gary Kasparov (Weinstein) come to mind

The Objective

Russia isn’t even protecting your Iranian forces and proxies in Syria against Israel, never mind that Russia has deployed its most advanced AA missile systems to Syria, and they are supposedly allies, fighting on the same side as Iran for Assad. If Russia refuses to shelter Iranian forces in Syria, what makes you think they’ll take a much bigger risk against America?

Lone Ranger

Officially Russia and Iran arent allies, partners maybe.
Russia has no obligation to protect them in Syria.
They would gain nothing doing so but risk a lot.
Letting Iran be destroyed is a totally different story because that would lead to further implications which would compromize and even threat the national Security of both Russia and Iran.

tzatz

Iran’s Mullah Police State is tottering … has China offered AID ?

Lone Ranger

Less of a police state than the U.S. or Israel.
Yes they did.

Dont let yourself bother by the fact that Gates and globalists had a meeting a year before it happened and told exactly what will happen…
Come on Shlomo you can do better ?

tzatz

It’s called being knowledgeable … eh?

GATES …. is a good guy … giving his ??? to help ALL of humanity (even if your ilk doesn’t deserve it) …

Lone Ranger

Never go full retard Shlomo…
Next. .

tzatz

Gates and his crew are just ‘smarter’ than YOU and your crew … hello?

The Jews/Zionists/Israelis are just ‘smarter’ than your crew as well … eh?

next

Lone Ranger

Sure Shlomo…
+25Shekels…
Dont spend it all at once…

The Objective

Russia doesn’t want to risk even a conventional war with America over its puppet (Assad), where Russia has military bases. What makes you think the Russians will stick their neck out for Iran?

Lone Ranger

Russia, SAA and Iran won in Syria.
That lil base with a few hundred trolls stealing oil is no real threat nor worth to start a war for.
Iran is a different story.

tzatz

Exactly …

Russia isn’t sticking out its neck for Assad … either any puppet will do

Russia allows the IAF to attack the IRGC/Hezbollah/Shia Brigades … eh?

HiaNd

Nobody is needed…. when China and Russia get involved.
That would be the end of US in Middle East

tzatz

China and Russia will shew the US out of the Middle East? lol

Ernest

Slow news day, as if in this day and age of smart phones an “unnamed senior official’s” death can remain hidden. Just more fake news and psy-ops as the clock ticks.

tzatz

Oops ….

Vox Populi

This is certainly fake news and did not get any traction in any media, however it is indicative of Zionist desperation. Israel chose to assassinate a high-level elderly semi-retired Iranian nuclear scientist with more than tacit approval from the outgoing Trump administration. Israel’s corruption indicted prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, apparently saw what was undoubtedly his last chance to attack Iran, knowing that the incoming Biden administration would have no part in such an action, since Joe Biden wishes to build bridges instead of destroying them.

A sad commentary indeed on the loser Trump and the lengths to which he will go to make it difficult for Mr. Biden to overcome the president’s hateful legacy.

Redadmiral

Biden has been a member of AIPAC for years and will follow HRCs road map for the Levant. So if Biden, we unfortunately can expect an increase in Yankee troops and agression against Syria, Iraq, Iran and Russia. However, with Trump still sitting in the Oval Office he can bide his time until the EC votes on 14th before conceeding defeat. Then again, Expect the unexpected….

anything un-towards happening in the middle east, syria, iraq and so on are always due to the presence of the jews in palestine, directly or indirectly. just remember that that is the case and work towards a palestine free of the jews. it will be the sole reason for peace in the middle east.
