“Iran’s military says two officials who worked in the field of aerospace have been killed in separate incidents inside the Islamic republic. Ali Kamani, a member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) aerospace division, was ‘martyred’ in Khomein in central Markazi Province on June 12, the IRGC-affiliated Fars news agency said. Separately, Mohammad Abdous, an employee of the Defense and Armed Forces Logistics Ministry, was ‘martyred’ late on June 12 ‘during a mission’ in the northern Semnan Province, the ministry said in a statement. … The announcement of the two deaths comes after IRGC Colonel Sayyad Khodai, 50, was shot dead outside his home last month in the east of the Iranian capital by attackers on motorcycles. The IRGC accused ‘Zionists’ — a reference to Israel — of being behind the killing and vowed revenge.” (06/13/22)
