Israel Deals Deadly Blow to Nemesis

1 min read

Israel has retaliated against Iran’s alliance with Hamas by striking one of its top agents. Sayyed Razi Mousavi, a top commander, was killed in Damascus by an Israeli strike.

Mousavi was the most senior Iranian advisor in Syria. His support for the Syrian government has put him at odds with the West. Western and Iranian forces cooperated against ISIS in the late 2010s. Fox News says:

Iran’s state media says an Israeli airstrike outside Damascus in Syria on Monday killed an Iranian senior adviser in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Reuters reported that three security sources confirmed the death of Sayyed Razi Mousavi, who was responsible for coordinating a military alliance between Iran and Syria.

The strike is a tough blow to Iran, who swore vengeance against Israel. It is likely that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard was coordinating with Israel’s enemies from Syria.Business Insider reports on Iran’s response:

“This act is a sign of the Zionist regime’s frustration and weakness in the region for which it will certainly pay the price,” Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi said, according to state-owned media.

The apparent killing of Seyed Razi Mousavi, a longtime advisor of the Iranian paramilitary Revolutionary Guard in Syria, comes amid ongoing fears of the Israel-Hamas war sparking a regional spillover.

The Israel conflict in Gaza is likely beyond the halfway point now, but regional problems continue. The Red Sea shipping problems near Yemen continues, and a war in Lebanon is still possible.
