TEHRAN–An Iranian Revolutionary Guard general was killed along with a number of fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah group in an Israeli airstrike in Syria, an Iranian news website said on Monday.
General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi was killed during an Israeli strike on the Syrian sector of the Golan Heights on Sunday.
“Following the Zionist aggressions against the resistance in Syria, General Mohammad Allahdadi, a former commander of the Sarollah Brigade of the Revolutionary Guard, was martyred along with Jihad Moughniyah and three others in the same car,” the Dana news website said.
The Israeli strike also killed the son of a slain top Hezbollah commander.
Jihad Mughniyeh was the son of Emad Mughniyeh, a top Hezbollah operative assassinated in 2008 in Damascus.
