Iran’s president vowed Monday that his country would avenge the death of an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps officer killed by assassins in Tehran over the weekend. Speaking to reporters ahead of a trip to Oman Monday morning, President Ebrahim Raisi called the assassination of Colonel Hassan Sayyad Khodaei, a member of the IRGC's Quds Force in Syria, an act of “terrorism”, adding that Iran would take “revenge” for Khodaei’s killing. “I insist on the serious pursuit [of the assassins] by security officials, and I have no doubt that the blood of this great martyr will be avenged.” Raisi said that Iran’s probe into Khodaei’s assassination would revealed that “global arrogange” was behind the “criminal act”.
