Iranian Commander Killed In Syria Was A Major Enemy Of Israel

• Business Insider

A closer look at General Hassan Shateri (aka Hessam Khosnevis) shows just how important this man was, and why Iran quickly blamed "agents and supporters of the Zionist regime."

Shateri was a senior officer in the IRGC's elite Quds force — the international arm of the Revolutionary Guards — and reportedly "the highest ranking Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps officer to be killed outside Iran."

Iran's official Press TV described him as leading "the Iranian-financed reconstruction projects in the south of Lebanon" — where Shi’ites form a majority of the population — for the last seven years.
