Israeli demo of walk & chew gum at the same time

It would seem that - while still prosecuting Hamas in Gaza - the Israelis have managed to conduct a daylight strike plunking the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria. A senior IRGC commander is killed in the strike.

Snippets from the Guardian's full story:
Quote:
Israeli warplanes have destroyed the Iranian consulate in Damascus, killing six people including a senior commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

Reporters at the scene in the Mezzeh district of the Syrian capital saw smoke rising from the rubble of a building that had been flattened, and emergency vehicles parked outside. The Syrian and Iranian foreign ministers were both seen at the scene.

Iranian state media said Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior commander of the IRGC, was among the dead. An Israeli military spokesperson said: “We do not comment on reports in the foreign media.”
This is my sad face about the IGRC casualties.
