Israel was responsible for the assassination of a senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander in Syria, a faction of Syrian rebels said Friday according to the Wall Street Journal.

According to reports, the man was killed in his car while traveling from Damascus to Beirut. However, the Syrian rebels dispute this account, claiming that the Iranian commander, identified as Gen. Hassan Shateri, also known as Hessam Khoshnevis,  had actually been assassinated on January 30, when Israel attacked a convoy and military factory in Jamaraya, Syria, near the Lebanon border.
