Iranian leaders say Israeli missile strike killed senior Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps adviser

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.

State television interrupted programming to announce the death of Mousavi and described him as one of the oldest advisers for the IRGC in Syria.

The announcement stated that Mousavi accompanied Qassem Soleimani, the head of the IRGC’s elite Quds Force, who died in a U.S. drone attack in Iraq in 2020.
