Iranian General’s Death: A Significant Loss for Iran on Syria and Lebanon Fronts

Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, who met his end in an attack on the Syrian capital, was a top commander for Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on three crucial fronts: Syria, Lebanon and Palestine. He was 64 years old and had been leading activities in these regions for many years.

Zahedi’s influence went beyond that of a military advisor. He played a significant role in supporting the Palestinian people and coordinating activities in the region. His meeting with his deputies and representatives of Palestinian armed groups in Syria was targeted in the attack, which Iranian officials blamed on an Israeli F-35 fighter jet firing missiles.

Zahedi’s role as a liaison between Iranian and Hezbollah forces in Syria and Lebanon made him a crucial figure in the region. After joining the IRGC in 1980, Zahedi played important roles in supporting Hezbollah in Lebanon and President Bashar Al-Assad in Syria during the civil war. He was targeted by the US Treasury Department in 2010 for his involvement with Syrian intelligence and Hezbollah.

Following the death of General Qassem Soleimani, Zahedi inherited his legacy on the Syrian and Lebanese fronts, acting as a bridge between Iran’s allies in the region. Israeli intelligence considers him more influential than General Esmail Qaani, who succeeded Soleimani, due to his deeper knowledge of the region and languages.
