By TOI staff

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has replaced the longtime commander of the unit responsible for protecting the country’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei, state-affiliated media reported Saturday. The move came just two days after the militia announced it would also replace its intelligence chief, following a number of high-profile killings blamed on Israel and amid reports of foiled Iranian revenge attacks in Turkey.

Ebrahim Jabbari, who commanded the IRGC’s “Vali Amr Protection Corps” since 2010, was replaced by Hasan Mashroueifar, the semi-official Iranian Tasnim news agency reported citing the militia’s spokesman, Ramezan Sharif. The unit, tasked with protecting Khamenei and his family, reportedly operates somewhat independently. Little is known about the new chief Mashroueifar.
