Iranian IRGC website publishes information of potential Israeli targets

Fars news website affiliated with the Iranian IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) has published an article profiling several Israeli businesspeople, using thinly veiled threatening language.

The article published on Sunday and credited to the “International Desk” of the website claims it obtained “internal information” about these individuals who are “experts in military, security, cyber and technology fields of the Zionist regime.” The website also claims that the individuals were involved in “sabotage in Islamic countries and assassination of resistance activists.”

The article is headlined, “Zionists who have to live in hiding”.

It goes on to say that “The rest of the information includes very precise details about their family members, photos and videos, home and work addresses, and their commuting routes, as well as telephone numbers…”

However, the information published about each person is very brief and can be easily obtained from public sources.

The Fars article comes at a time when the Islamic Republic seems exposed and vulnerable to Israeli operations inside the country. Numerous acts of sabotage and assassination have occurred in Iran since July 2020. Sensitive nuclear, military and economic targets have been hit, although Israel has never confirmed or denied involvement.

The last incident occurred on May 22, when an operative of the Iranian IRGC Quds Force was gunned down outside his home in Tehran in broad daylight. A security source later told Iran International that the IRGC colonel Hasan Sayyad-Khodaei was responsible for recruiting operatives for terror attacks against Israelis.

The Quds Force is Iran’s and IRGC’s extraterritorial operations arm, responsible for kidnappings, assassinations, and the exportation of the “revolution” abroad. Quds Force is active through paid proxy militia groups in the middle east and uses Iranian embassies in other countries across the globe to execute its missions.

Iranian officials, shaken by the incident, vowed revenge for the killing as reports said Israel had privately told the United States that it had eliminated the alleged terror organizer.
