2 Iranian Revolutionary Guardsmen killed

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates ( Associated Press) — Two members of the paramilitary Revolutionary Guards aerospace division were killed as “martyrs” in Iran in separate incidents over the weekend, Iranian media reported Monday. The term is typically a designation given to those who fulfill important assignments.

The deaths of the two men come as tensions remain high over Iran’s failed nuclear deal with world powers and its uranium enrichment program that is now closer than ever to a warlike level. While authorities offered no suggestion of anything unusual in the men’s deaths, Israel has been accused of killing other senior members of the Guard amid a growing crisis.

Separately, Israel warned tourists on Monday to leave Turkey over a series of suspected plots against Israelis in that country.

The semi-official Fars and Tasnim news agencies, believed to be close to the Revolutionary Guards, identified one of the dead as Ali Kamani and reported that he died in Khomein, a city in central Iran. Tasnim added that Kamani died in a “car accident”, without offering further details.

News agencies did not release Kamani’s rank. However, a photo published by Tasnim showed the man in epaulettes a second lieutenant in the Guards aerospace program, which runs Iran’s ballistic missile program and some of the country’s air defenses.

Khomein, the birthplace of Grand Ayatollah Ruhola Khomeini, who led the Islamic Revolution of 1979, is located in the province of Markazi. That province is also home to Iran’s Arak heavy water reactor, a key site of the nuclear program that has air defenses all around it.
