Tragic Loss: Suspected Poisoning Claims Four Members of IRGC

Several soldiers from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) died after being suspected of being poisoned in Deir ez-Zor, in eastern Syria. The suspected mass poisoning targeted the leadership, with all four of those killed being described as commanders or leaders. Several others were reported injured, including leaders in the IRGC’s women’s groups. Few details have been released, but speculation suggests Israeli or American complicity. Emirati political analyst Salem Alketibi jokingly asked if perhaps Israel had used magic to recruit jinn to counter “the terrorist militias reported divine victory.”
