      Iran’s Revolutionary Guard vows revenge for commander’s assassination

      The spokesman for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Ramazan Sharif, has vowed to take revenge for the killing of IRGC commander Sayyed Razi Mousavi in Syria on Monday.

      He said that Mousavi’s assassination broke international laws as he was an advisor of a country that is a UN member and called on all international institutions to condemn the strikes.

      Sharif said the reason that Israel decided to assassinate Mousavi now is due to the success of Hamas’s Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on October 7 and Israel’s failure to defeat “the resistance” in more than 80 days of war.

      Israel gives initial approval for Cyprus-Gaza sea corridor: Report

      Israel has agreed “in principle” to allow Cyprus, with the support of Britain, to open up a humanitarian sea corridor into Gaza, reports Israel’s Hayom newspaper.

      The corridor would bring more supplies and equipment into the besieged Palestinian enclave, which has so far relied only on the Rafah border crossing with Egypt, and recently, the Karem Abu Salem (Kerem Shalom) crossing by Israel.

      Israel’s Foreign Minister Eli Cohen relayed the initial approval for the corridor to his counterparts in Cyprus and the UK on Tuesday, saying it could likely begin operating “upon completion of the required preparations”, according to Hayom.
