After the assassination of its supreme leader, Iran became very angry and announced that it would definitely avenge this murder. Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi described the killing of Colonel Hassan Seyed Khadi as a terrorist attack and said Iran would take revenge for it. All this happened when Colonel Hassan Seyed Khadi of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was shot dead by gunmen in Tehran on Sunday night. It was said that the Israeli intelligence agency (Mossad) was behind this murder.
International Arrogance Hand
Indeed, after this attack in Iran, a strong and sharp reaction was observed. On Monday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said on his way to Amman that an investigation into the attack would reveal that “international arrogance” was behind it and that blood would soon retaliate. He said that the people who were defeated by the forces of guarding the holy shrines of the Shiites in Syria, are expressing their frustration at carrying out such criminal attacks.
The Colonel was killed by the enemies of Iran
After the attack, a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said, on Sunday, that the colonel was killed by the enemies of Iran, who are terrorist agents. Unfortunately, those who claim to fight terrorism remain silent and support it. And the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) said in a report that he believed that Iran’s statement represented a gesture towards America and its allies.
Arrest of some Mossad operatives
And earlier, after the attack, it was also said from Iran that some members of the Israeli intelligence service Mossad were arrested in this case. Iran has expressed its doubts about the hands of these people in this massacre. Seyed Khadi was the second major military commander of Iran after Qassem Soleimani. He was in charge of protecting the holy sites of the Shiite community in Iraq and Syria.
