Deputy Chief of Iran's Quds Force Hejazi Dies of Heart Attack Aged 65

Hejazi served as deputy commander of the elite wing of the IRGC under Esmail Ghaani, the successor of Gen. Qasem Soleimani, who was killed in a US targeted attack at the International Airport in Baghdad. Hejazi is said to have had significant experience in Lebanon.

The deputy commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force, Mohammad Hussein-Zada Hejazi, died of a heart attack on Sunday, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps announced in a statement.

65-year-old Hejazi, who served at the rank of Brigadier General, was a direct subordinate of Iran's General Qasem Soleimani until the latter's death early last year in a US drone attack. He was appointed the Quds Force Deputy Commander in late January following Soleimani's death by the country's supreme leader, Ali Khamenei.
