The deputy commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force, Mohammad Hussein-Zada Hejazi, died of a heart attack on Sunday, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps announced in a statement.
 
65-year-old Hejazi, who served at the rank of Brigadier General, was a direct subordinate of Iran's General Qasem Soleimani until the latter's death early last year in a US drone attack. He was appointed the Quds Force Deputy Commander in late January following Soleimani's death by the country's supreme leader, Ali Khamenei.
