The IRGC said the airstrike that killed Mousavi was carried out by israel. However, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) refused to comment on the matter. “I won’t comment on foreign reports, these or others in the Middle East,” IDF spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari told Reuters about the situation previously. “The Israeli military obviously has a job to protect the security interests of Israel.”

The animated video of Netanyahu’s assassination depicts how he dies when atime bomb planted under his desk explodes.

After Mousavi was killed, Iran issued an ominous warning to Israel. IRGC said in a statement that “the usurper and savage Zionist regime will pay for this crime.” Further, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said Israel would “certainly pay the price” for Mousavi’s death, calling it “a sign of the Zionist regime’s frustration and weakness in the region.”

According toIranian representatives, Mousavi was a close companion of the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, Gen. Qassim Soleimani. Soleimani was killed in a US drone strike in Iraq in January 2020. Mousavi was also one of the IRGC’s oldest advisers in Syria, and reportedly coordinated the military alliance between Iran and Syria. He is believed to have lived in Syria for as many as 30 years. He had his own office inside the Syrian Defense Ministry.
