Iranian commander has been killed in Lebanon
An Iranian independent news website is reporting that a senior commander of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard has been killed in Lebanon. Associated Press writes about this.
The website — mashreghnews.ir — says Gen. Hassan Shateri was killed by "mercenaries of the Zionist regime," but provided no details about his death.
Shateri led Guard forces in Lebanon and oversaw Iranian-financed reconstruction projects there.
Iran is an important player in Syrian issue and in the region in general.
