DEVELOPING STORY

A senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander was killed on Sunday night near the Syrian-Iraqi border, the news outlet Al Arabiya reported on Monday, citing Iraqi sources.

Al Arabiya’s sources said that a drone had targeted Muslim Shahdan’s car near the border, killing the Iranian commander.

Furthermore, Al Arabiya said that no other details were provided and that Iran has neither confirmed nor denied reports of Shahdan’s death. No other sources, outlets, or authorities have yet to confirm his death.

This comes off the heels of the Friday assassination of Iran’s chief nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. Tensions between Iran and the United States and Israel have been mounting since the U.S. killed an Iranian general, Qasem Soleimani, back in January. Further, the Trump administration’s efforts to broker normalized relations between the Jewish State and Arab countries that see Iran as an enemy has also somewhat isolated Iran.

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
