#1 This is not getting much appreciation in the western media. But this guy was a big wheel for the Revolutionary Guards in Iran. Apparently they are very angry at his death. It appears he was targeted when Israeli bombers also hit the chemical weapons intended for Hezbollah (a couple of weeks ago). Or maybe there NEVER WERE any chemical weapons and this whole strike was aimed at Hassan Shateri. It's a major setback for Iranian agents operating inside Syria.
Once again ... pinpoint targeting by the Israeli intel agencies. With devastating consequences!
