After a string of senior officials died, and following the mysterious death of a Revolutionary Guards fighter Ali Kamimi yesterday (Sunday), the Iranian news agency reported today (Monday) that another scientist Muhammad Abdus was killed “in an accident while on a mission.”
Iran reported yesterday that a fighter in the Aviation and Space Unit of the Revolutionary Guards, Ali Kamimi, was killed in a car accident while on a mission in the eastern city of Khomeini.
According to the Iranian news agency, Ali Kamimi is called a “Shahid” – a nickname that is not commonly used to refer to a person killed in a normal accident.

Today the news agency said that Muhammad Abdus a Revolutionary Guardsman and scientist at Simman, was, among other things, a developer of the UAV systems.
Like the two who recently died, Ali Kamimi and Dr. Ayub Antzari, Abdus was from the Revolutionary Guards Air and Space Department, working for a company that develops Iranian satellites but also UAVs and ballistic missiles.
It is very possible that the Aviation and Space Unit of the Revolutionary Guards is a rocket and missile unit.
About two weeks ago, it was reported that two Iranian scientists associated with aerospace and nuclear projects were found lifeless. According to reports, one of the scientists, Dr. Ayoub Antzari, was poisoned to death by a man who managed to escape from the country. “The relationship between the two has developed into a friendship, and Anztari accepted an invitation to dinner with him. At the end of the meal, when he made his way back to his house, he suddenly felt bad and collapsed.”
These deaths join a string of other incidents and assassinations in Iran in the past month. About three weeks ago, Quds Force officer Hassan Siad Khoudayari was assassinated.
About a week ago, Iranian media reported that another commander in Unit 840 of the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guards had died this week – Ali Ismailazadeh after falling from a roof. The various and contradictory reports raised questions about the circumstances of his death—whether it was a suicide or an assassination.
The death of Dr. Kamran Malafor, a nuclear specialist who worked at the Natanz facility in Isfahan province, has also been reported in recent days.
