Israel reportedly assassinated Major General Saeed Aibar (an Iranian advisor in Syria and a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard) less than a month ago in an airstrike on Aleppo targeting his convoy just hours after his return from Iran.

During his visit, he had assumed his duties as commander of the Revolutionary Guard front in Lebanon and Syria. He succeeded Commander Mohammad Reza Zahidi, who was assassinated by Israel when it launched an airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, resulting in the death of Zahidi along with several of his aides.

The position remains vacant to this day after Israel assassinated Zahidi’s successor.

According to information, there is a re-gathering, reportedly positioning and deployment of the Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah elements in Syria. This step has led the Revolutionary Guard to reduce the number of its members, and Hezbollah has done the same due to its need for its members in the confrontation.
