An air strike killed a commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards along the Iraq-Syria border at the weekend, according to Iraqi officials.

A drone is said to have killed Muslim Shahdan, a senior commander in the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, in a targeted strike on his car.

Three of the commander’s bodyguards were also killed in the attack, in which unidentified warplanes targeted them near a village in Syria’s eastern Deir ez-Zor province, according to Anadolu Agency.

The incident came just days after Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in Tehran in a killing that Iran has blamed on Israel. Tehran sources have claimed assassins used a remote controlled machine gun left inside a car which then blew up.
