Iran Lawmaker Says Mossad Infiltrators Helped In Killing Of Guards

Wednesday, 01/24/2024

A member of Iran's National Security Commission claims that Israeli spy agency Mossad infiltrators played a role in the killing of five Quds Force members in Syria.

Morteza Mahmoudvand stated, "According to our information, the incident undoubtedly involved infiltration and intelligence operations," pointing to Mossad, the Israeli security service, as specialists in such activities, suggesting their likely involvement in the assassinations of the chiefs from the IRGC's foreign wing, the Quds Force.

“The Israeli security service known as Mossad specializes in that exactly – undoubtedly, it has been at the forefront of infiltration and intelligence work.”

Some Iranian critics of the regime have also mocked the IRGC for having been infiltrated by Israel.

Syria's state-run SANA news agency attributed the Saturday attack in Damascus to Israel. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) confirmed the loss of four members in the airstrikes, with a fifth succumbing to injuries later. Subsequently, Iran-backed militant groups in Iraq launched rockets at Assad Air Base in Anbar province, where US forces are stationed.

In response to the killings, Iranian Parliamentary Speaker Mohamad Bagher Ghalibaf warned of "severe punishment" for Israel. Iran has consistently threatened Israel with severe consequences for its alleged role in the deaths of IRGC commanders and forces in the region though Tehran has refrained from direct attacks.

In December, Razi Mousavi, also known as Seyyed Razi, was killed in an Israeli airstrike near Damascus. He was responsible for overseeing logistics and military coordination for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in Syria. His role included acquiring weapons and coordinating activities for Iran-backed forces in both Syria and Lebanon.
