Multiple IRGC Generals Reported Killed In Israeli Attack On Iranian Embassy In Syria

•, by Tyler Durden

Iran's foreign minister slammed it as "a violation of all international obligations and conventions" while the Syrian government denounced it as a "terrorist attack". 

Iran's Ambassador to Syria Hossein Akbari was not injured in the attack, which appeared to have occurred at the moment a high level meeting was taking place. Iranian state media has since confirmed the death of Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior commander in the elite Quds Force of the IRGC. There are further indicators that two more top IRGC commanders may be among the slain...

"Tasnim reported that Zahedi's deputy was also killed in the strike," regional media further confirms.

Depending on Iran's response, this could be the start of an all-out regional war. For months now, Iranian-made ballistic missiles and drones have rained down on Israel, fired by Iran's proxies in Lebanon and Yemen. This new brazen Israeli attack on Iran's embassy takes things into uncharted territory, and also opens up the potential for the Iranians to target Israeli embassies abroad.

The annex or consular building next to the embassy in Mezzeh district was flattened in the strike...

There are emerging reports and accompanying video confirmation that an Israeli airstrike destroyed part of the complex of the Iranian embassy in the Syrian capital on Monday.

Syrian state media is also reporting that Israel conducted a rare daytime strike in the vicinity of the Iranian embassy in Damascus. Video shows that the entire front of the embassy complex and drive along with a side annex building have been destroyed.
