‘Israel’s strike on Syria last month killed top Iranian general’
Times of Israel ^ | 2/24/13 | Gabe Fisher

Hassan Shateri, the Iranian general whose killing was reported last week, was actually slain last month in an alleged IAF airstrike that was said to have targeted a weapons convoy heading from Syria to the Lebanese group Hezbollah, Britain’s Sunday Times reported.

Iran was quick last week to blame “mercenaries and supporters” of Israel for Shateri’s death, although it made no indication that he had been killed in the January airstrike. Tehran “will take revenge on Israel for the killing of a Quds Force general in Syria,” said Ali Shirazi, liaison for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to the Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds Force.

Shateri was a high-ranking member of the Quds Force, which is tasked with international operations, and was instrumental in Iran-Hezbollah relations, overseeing the reconstruction of Hezbollah’s armaments in the wake of the 2006 Second Lebanon War, Sunday’s report said.

For Israel, he was long a “prime target,” according to an Israeli security figure quoted by The Times.

The report described how, despite the tight security surrounding Shateri, Israeli agents spotted him in Damascus and trailed him as he boarded the convoy headed for Lebanon, after which the airstrike option was utilized.

We(and the IDF) should declare open season on any Iranian military personnel outside of their home country.

Taking a break from selling oil for American tax dollars in Afghanistan? Oh, and supplying the Taliban at the same time.

They sure threaten Israel a lot but never quite getting around to attacking it. They know full well how suicidal that would be, hence their desperation for nuclear weapons.

I'm wondering if we are ever going to get the true story about what caused the underground nuclear facility in Iran to implode.

Word today is they are having some leakage now. I bet they can see it from our satellites on every pass.
It is amazing how quiet the Iranians have been since someone gave them a reality check.

I am the one who directed this storm upon the evil spawn of Islam. I spit upon their moon god.

That’s a feature, not a bug.
