Tensions in the Middle East have escalated following Iran’s vow to seek revenge against Israel for the assassination of a senior Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) advisor. The targeted killing, which occurred in the latest in a series of high-profile incidents, has further strained relations between the two nations.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi says the Israeli regime will pay the price for its criminal act of killing a senior military advisor of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in Syria.
In a message on Monday, Raeisi said the vicious act of assassinating the IRGC military advisor in a missile attack in Syria was yet another sign of the usurping Zionist regime’s desperation.
Seyyed Razi Mousavi, who was serving as a military advisor in Syria, was killed in an Israeli airstrike in the Sayyeda Zeinab neighborhood of the Syrian capital of Damascus earlier on Monday.
