Slain IRGC commander Mohammad Reza Zahedi Was Architect Of October 7


An ultra-conservative political group in Iran said slain IRGC commander Mohammad Reza Zahedi was involved in the planning and execution of Hamas’s deadly October 7 attack against Israel.

It is the clearest admission of Iran’s involvement in the atrocities which saw 1,200 mostly civilians murdered and over 250 taken hostage, since terror group Hamas invaded Israel on October 7.

Zahedi, along with his deputy and five other IRGC forces, were killed Monday in an Israeli airstrike against Iran's consulate building in the Syrian capital Damascus.

In a statement issued Wednesday, Coalition Council of Islamic Revolution Forces (also known by its Persian acronym SHANA) hailed Zahedi’s “strategic role in forming and strengthening the resistance front as well as in planning and executing the Al-Aqsa Storm.”

“Axis of resistance” or “resistance front” are the terms coined and employed by the Iranian authorities to refer to Tehran’s proxies in the region, such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Hashd al-Shaabi and Yemeni Houthis.


Iran has time and again denied its involvement in the incident, saying Hamas and other Tehran-backed armed groups in the region make their own decisions and act independently.

However, the Iranian regime swiftly praised the October 7 attack and orchestrated street celebrations, with large banners hung within hours. Some view this as a potential indication that Tehran had prior knowledge of the operation, a claim reported by the WSJ.


SHANA praised Zahedi’s “great honors” in his “silent efforts” against Israel. “The supporters of Tel Aviv should know that the Islamic Republic of Iran’s harsh and regrettable response to this bloody crime is on its way and will affect the future equations of the region, God willing,” added the statement.

SHANA is headed by former Parliament Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel, a figure close to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. The coalition’s secretary is Parviz Sorouri, the former IRGC commander.

In the aftermath of Israel's attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, billboards bearing the slogan "We Take Revenge" in both Hebrew and English have sprung up across the Iranian capital. The billboards, featuring images of Israeli military leaders, were placed in front of ten foreign embassies in Tehran, including those of Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, France, the UK, Germany, and Azerbaijan.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Tuesday vowed to "punish" Israel for the attack. The sentiment was echoed by other senior Iranian officials, including President Ebrahim Raisi and Parliament Speaker Mohammad-Bagher Ghalibaf, who all promised “severe” repercussions.


However, numerous commentators in Tehran urged a measured reaction to Israel's Monday strike, cautioning that it could be a ploy to draw Iran into direct conflict.

Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, a prominent commentator and former head of the Iranian parliament's foreign policy committee, strongly indicated that the Israeli attack on the embassy was a deliberate plot to entangle Iran in a war. “We should not see the issues emotionally. I have said many times since October 7 that this is a trap for Iran. Since October 7, the trajectory of events has been a setup to drag Iran into war, and what happened was that the balance between diplomacy and the battlefield was disrupted. This imbalance gradually led Iran into a conflict that serves none of its national interests,” he pointed out.

The storm will only take Iran by surprise and take them back to the stone age.


Israel has been itching to lay hands on Iran and if Iran who we all know is working hard to obliterate Israel, dare to retaliate then Israel will go all out for them. It would be a total mayhem.

Make no mistake about this.

This one will stop at nothing to push his useless propaganda. The military industrial complex is itching for a war every now and then, because that is how they make their monies, billions and billions in defense contract, while you in Africa, that is yet to enjoy your life due to various suppressions of your growth potential, is here supporting the stupidity.

Any nation that attacks another nation's consulate in such a callous manner, should be ready for whatever response they get. Giving a dog a bad name in order to hang her, is just a stale script that's been overused by the Zionist entity.

When will the Jews in Israel believe that Jesus is God or that Jesus is the Son of God or that he is both?! Will Igbo Jews and Igbo Christians be able to live in peace?! Food for thought. Honestly, I wish Biafra can be experimented.

Do you know peace is more expensive than war ? The amount of resources spent in maintaining peace between world countries is X2 the amount spent in wars. Meanwhile, I sell quality shirts, 3 for fifteen kay.

A group in Iran says the commander was involved in Oct. 7 attack.

I hope the group is not the IPOB version of Iran. How can that then be the clearest indication since Oct. 7?

Sorry, but he just had to be killed not only to avenge the deaths of those victims but to prevent more bloodshed. How was he located? This had to be in the realm of secret intelligence espionage tradecraft sh*t, the kind of gigs Mossad thrives on... Of course in combination of American stealth tech with Israel avionics and ordnance. Kudos..

Picture this. You're in a war torn "country" to help the starving by giving out foods donated worldwide by fellow caring people. You've got three trucks and you've given your routes to those in control of the area to avoid mistakes. as you're about carrying out your duty your vehicle was struck by an ordinance from a drone. Not to be deterred you picked up your injured and managed to get to the other vehicle and continued your mission while reporting that you're being fired upon to the military responsible for the area. Few minutes later the vehicle you're in gets bombed again and this time there were more injuries. Nevertheless you still managed to drag yourself and others to the third and final vehicle. Now you're seven in the vehicle with varying degrees of injuries. You get to the third vehicle and again you were bombed. This time you didn't survive

The bombers in that story are Israelis and this incident calls into question thousands of "Hamas terrorists" they've been claiming to have killed. Ask yourself what if most of those labelled "terrorists" and getting bombed by Israelis in this war aren't really terrorists but innocent people?
Note that this story of three vehicles getting bombed made mainstream news just cuz those killed were charity volunteers from several countries. If these people were Palestinians then Israelis would've just said they were terrorists and that would be it afterall dead men tell no tales

Hun! Obviously, most of those who masterminded the Oct. attack came from outside Palestinian Gaza. Gaza became scape goat because they harboured them
