Two more top Iranian officials have been killed this week in separate mysterious incidents, just days after a top Iranian commander was gunned down outside his home and an Iranian drone manufacturing site came under attack by suicide drones.

Colonel Ali Esmailzadeh of the Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds Force reportedly died during an incident at his residence in the city of Karaj.

Iranian media said that he died after falling from his roof. Opponents of the Islamic Republic, however, claimed that Esmailzadeh was killed by the state because they suspected him of being a spy involved in the death of Colonel Hassan Sayad Khodayari, who was gunned down in front of his home by operatives on a motorcycle.
Khodaei planned “abductions and assassinations” on Jews around the world as part of the military operations of a Quds Force group known as Unit 840. Israel reportedly told U.S. officials that killing Khodaei was a message to Iran to cease its covert operations targeting its citizens.
