IRGC Commander vows revenge for martyred Khodaei
Brigadier General Hossein Salami, IRGC Commander, has vowed retribution for the assassination of martyr Hassan Sayyad Khodaei.
Brigadier General Hossein Salami, commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said on Monday that the IRGC will undoubtedly exact retribution for the death of one of its own Martyr Hassan Sayyad Khodaei.
The commander, while in a meeting with Khodaei's family, stated that those assassinated by Zionists are particularly of higher status due to being killed by the worst people on earth.
On May 22, the IRGC confirmed the assassination of Sayyad Khodaei in front of his house in the Iranian capital of Tehran.
In a statement, the IRGC indicated that Khodaei was martyred with five bullets shot by two terrorists on a motorcycle.
After the assassination, President Raisi urged Iranian security officials to investigate the assassination and to avenge his blood, emphasizing that revenge is certain.
He expressed his condolences to the family of the martyr and elaborated that those who were defeated by the defenders of Al-Quds, implying the Israeli occupation, demonstrate their helplessness by assassinating martyr Sayyad Khodaie.
The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the assassination, offering its condolences to Khodaei's family members while describing the murder as "a crime against humanity."
