IRGC Quds Force member assassinated in Tehran


A member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ Quds Force, Colonel Hassan Sayad Khodayari, was assassinated in Tehran on Sunday afternoon, the IRGC announced.

Khodayari operated in Syria, according to the IRGC statement. Photos reportedly from the scene showed Khodayari dead in a vehicle after he was shot.

 But he disdained to lay hands on Mordecai alone, for they had told him of the people of Mordecai. Instead, Haman sought to destroy all the Jews who were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus—the people of Mordecai.” Esther 3:6

Assailants on a motorcycle shot and killed the Quds Force member in front of his home on Mojahedin Eslam Street in the Iranian capital, according to Iranian reports. Iranian authorities are searching for the assailants.

The IRGC called the assassination a “criminal terrorist act of the counter-revolution and elements related to global arrogance (a term often used to refer to the US and Israel).”

Shortly after the assassination, in a seemingly unrelated incident, the IRGC claimed that it had arrested a “network of thugs” associated with the Mossad without providing further details.
