Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a top-ranking Iranian military official, tragically lost his life in a missile strike launched by an Israeli F-35 fighter jet in the Syrian capital, Damascus. He was the mastermind behind commanding three crucial fronts for Tehran, including Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine.

Zahedi, who was 64 years old, was a prominent figure within the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and played a significant role in overseeing IRGC activities in Lebanon and Syria. He was described as a military advisor in Syria but his influence extended far beyond that role. Zahedi led all activities of the Quds task force, an elite unit of the IRGC, on the three fronts of Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon. He was highly regarded for his leadership and strategic thinking.

At the time of the attack, Zahedi was in a meeting with other high-ranking officials, including representatives from Palestinian armed groups. The attack on the consulate building resulted in his untimely death along with several other key commanders. Iranian Ambassador to Syria accused Israel of carrying out the attack using advanced stealth fighters.

Zahedi’s career with the IRGC dates back to 1980, shortly after the Islamic Revolution in Iran. He served in various leadership roles within the IRGC, including commanding the Lebanese Corps under the Quds force. He played a crucial role in supporting Hezbollah and providing military training to the Lebanese armed forces. Zahedi’s expertise and influence in the region made him a key figure in IRGC operations in Lebanon and Syria.

Following General Qassem Soleimani’s death, Zahedi inherited his role as a key commander overseeing IRGC activities in Lebanon and Syria. Israeli intelligence assessed Zahedi as a vital link between Assad regime and Hezbollah’s operations across borders making him crucial for their coordination efforts with armed groups
