Iran’s Revolutionary Guard commander vows retaliation for strike that killed top generals

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The bodies of the seven Revolutionary Guard members killed in an airstrike widely attributed to Israel that destroyed Iran’s Consulate in the Syrian capital were laid to rest in Tehran amid nationwide protests. The strike on Monday killed 12 people, including four Syrian citizens and a member of the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group, according to officials. The public funeral on Friday coincided with Iran’s annual rally Quds Day, or Jerusalem Day, a traditional show of support for the Palestinians that has been held on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
