    died at the hands of militants of the Islamic State terrorist group banned in Russia, as a result of the actions of Israeli or American special forces operating undercover in the area.
    This is how it will be more truthful.

      Quite right! So it will be truer!
      At the same time, it is enough to look at the military map of the location of Al-Bukmal (at least the wartime of 2015) to make everything clear.
      Here is the shortest distance directly to the American bases in Iraq.

    As a rule, Iran recognizes the facts of attempts on its citizens, while promising to answer.
    According to Iranian data, the General died from the coronavirus ... The news raises a lot of questions about the cause of death.

      The general died from the coronavirus ...

      There are too many losses among the high command of the IRGC ... the number of generals and colonels killed is in the tens ... Apparently, problems in the security system of high-ranking military personnel in Iran are of no interest to anyone.

        Unfortunately, in Russia, officers also periodically "kill themselves", as well as engineers from the military-industrial complex die under different circumstances.

    It seems to me that the American-Israeli partners worked unambiguously. Only they benefit from chaos. Iran in Syria can be understood - neighbors and barmaley on their borders are not very eager to endure.

    Stylistic mistake in the title: you can eliminate someone who is a terrorist, criminal, etc. Azad Hassan Dahan was, like our contingent, at the invitation of the legitimate government of Syria.

      There is a good book
      Prisoner: My 544 Days in an Iranian Prison ― Solitary Confinement, a Sham Trial, High-Stakes Diplomacy, and the Extraordinary Efforts It Took to Get Me Out
      https://www.amazon.com/Prisoner-Prison_Solitary-Confinement-High-Stakes-Extraordinary/dp/0062691589/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=544+days+in+prison&qid=1610622780&s=books&sr=1-1

      I don't know if it is in Russian, quite an interesting look at the structure of Iran from a man who was suspected of working against Iran and who spent 544 in an Iranian prison, he describes how the interrogations took place, how the charges were built, prof. the quality of employees and Iran on the one hand seem to be a real strength, but on the other hand, the great influence of religious leaders hinders the normal selection of professional personnel.

      Not, not the same
      Can you imagine girls in bikinis on the beach or on the street in a miniskirt in the Islamic State-controlled or Islamic Republic of Iran?
      And in Tel Aviv and Miami?
      A mobile phone or a computer device developed in the Islamic State or the Islamic Republic of Iran, can you imagine?
      Are you familiar with iPhone and USB flash drive? laughing
      An ordinary party in a nightclub somewhere in Iraq or Tehran, how quickly IS or Basij fighters will be dispersed, can you imagine?
      And for someone to pursue the joint dances of boys and girls and drinking alcohol in Haifa or Manhattan? laughing
      Here's the same thing for you fellow
      At the same time, you can continue the analogy - a beach in Sochi, Kaspersky antivirus, Soho Rooms in Moscow, and imagine something similar in the territory controlled by ISIS or in Iran.
      You just have to think - why are we in Syria, who are the Iranians, etc.

      And they don't care anymore, to chase the IRGC all over Syria? No Mossad can get enough of them! If there were Israelis, they would blast a rocket, and all the business.
      There is a lot of honor, personally to liquidate it.
