Report: New Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander Involved In 1994 Buenos Aires Jewish Center Attack


NEW YORK (VINnews) — The new deputy commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force, Brigadier General Mohammad Hejazi (64), was involved in the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, according to international intelligence sources as quoted by Israeli Media Ynet.

The car bombing at the Associacion Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) which killed 85 people and wounded hundreds more is considered to be the worst terror attack in Argentina’s history. Hejazi allegedly participated in the planning of the attack and has avoided international travel since the attack fearing an Interpol warrant for his arrest. Hejazi  also recently supervised the transporting of weapons from Iran to Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite anti-Israel terrorist group supported by Iran.

Former Argentine federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found shot dead in mysterious circumstances in 2015, had been investigating the AMIA bombing and had formally accused Hezbollah and the Iranian government of directing the attack before his death.

Hejazi was appointed along with Esmail Ghaani, the new commander of the Quds Force, after the killing last month of Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. drone strike in Baghdad. The two assumed their positions on Monday at a ceremony held at the IRGC headquarters in Tehran.
