Israeli air strike in Syria kills top Iranian military adviser

 Sayyed Razi Mousavi was responsible for coordinating the military alliance between Syria and Iran.


An Israeli air strike outside the Syrian capital of Damascus has killed a senior adviser in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), according to reports from Iranian state media.

Sayyed Razi Mousavi, one of the top IRGC commanders in Syria, was killed on Monday.

He was responsible for coordinating the military alliance between Syria and Iran, an important part of Iran’s regional network of allies and proxies known as the “Axis of Resistance”.

Mousavi “was killed during an attack by the Zionist regime a few hours ago in Zeinabiyah district in the suburbs of Damascus,” Iran’s official IRNA news agency reported, using a different name for Sayyida Zeinab south of the Syrian capital.

In a statement read on state TV, the IRGC said that the “usurper and savage Zionist regime will pay for this crime”.

The strike comes amid fears that Israel’s war with the Palestinian armed group Hamas in Gaza could expand into a wider regional conflict, pulling in Iran-backed groups such as Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.
