Iran accuses Israel of assassinating officer in Syria

Iran accuses Israel of assassinating officer in Syria

Tehran, Nov 23 (Prensa Latina) Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) accused Israel on Wednesday of assassinating Aerospace Force Colonel Davud Yafariq when a bomb exploded in Damascus, Syria.

The Public Relations Office of Iran’s elite military institution informed that the senior officer served as a military advisor in the neighboring nation and was killed on Tuesday during an Israeli offensive.

The false and criminal Zionist regime will undoubtedly receive a response for the crime it has committed,” Iran’s IRGC said in a statement on Wednesday.

Iran provides military advice to the Syrian Army, at the request of Damascus, with the aim of helping the war-torn country to fight terrorist groups such as Daesh and other mercenary forces, supported by the West and some countries in the region.

The assassination of the high-ranking officer, attributed to Israeli forces by Tehran, further intensifies the tense relations between the two countries, which are today at a high point, following allegations of Mossad’s involvement in the violent riots taking place in the country since September 16.
