The article stated that he was also known as General Abd al-Rha’a Shahlai (Brig-Gen Shahlai.) Carried by the nickname “Sardar (General) Shahalai.” Sources close to Iran’s military institutions, such as the Amar cyber base in Tehran, noted that Hassan Irlo was one of the figures closest to Qassem Suleimani and one of the most influential figures in recent years in the Yemeni resistance arena.

Irlo served alongside Qassem Suleimani in Iraq. Irlo was crippled by the Iran-Iraq war after being exposed to chemical weapons that Saddam Hussein used against the forces in Iran. Hassan Irlo’s two brothers were killed on the front lines of the same war. His younger brother was only 15 at the time of his death. The brothers’ bodies have not been found so far. Irlo was smuggled into Yemen last year, and was declared ambassador to Iran in parts of Yemen under the control of the Houthi rebels and played a leading role in formulating the Houthi political and military strategy in their war in Saudi Arabia. Iran has a familiar pattern of action by Quds Force personnel under diplomatic disguise in various arenas.

Shortly after the news of his death and following reports on social media and other media in Iran that Irlo was in fact ‘Abd al-Racha’s Hala’i, commander and coordinator of Iran’s operations in Yemen, IRNA mimicked the statement stating that Irlo was in fact the general Shalai in Yemen, wanted by the US “B. Several other news sites in Iran that quoted the same article from the Iranian Agency left the original IRNA report for several hours.

Close to Irlo’s death, various rumors circulated on Iranian social media and media that he was killed in a Saudi air strike and died of his wounds after being transferred to Iran. Meanwhile, the Iranian-affiliated Rajanius website reported that Saudi fighter jets had bombed a certain area of ​​the city of Sanaa in Yemen a few days ago, revealing the ambassador’s whereabouts, but that report was also removed from the site shortly after.

Dozens of Revolutionary Guards commanders attended the funeral of Hassan Irlo, who was buried on December 22 in the Imam-Zada Taher Cemetery near Tehran. The funeral was also attended by the Iranian Shah, Amir Abdel Lahian, who is very close to the Revolutionary Guards and was also close to Qassem Suleimani.

The Iranian regime confirmed a few days ago that an embassy in Yemen had infected Koruna and was returned to Tehran via an Iraqi military plane after receiving special approval from the Saudi government. Two days after Irlo’s return to Tehran, the Iranian regime confirmed that the 63-year-old ambassador had died because his condition had been very serious while returning to the country. In exchange for his flight, Saudi Arabia requested the release of a number of Saudis detained by the Houthis.

Irlo’s death, and the reports of the delay in medical treatment submitted to him, drew a wide wave of anti-Saudi reactions in a number of conservative media outlets in Iran. The Mahar news agency reported that the kingdom had maliciously delayed Irlo’s arrival for treatment in Iran and that was the reason for his death.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hussein Amir Abdullahian, in a hint to Saudi Arabia, said Tehran “will never forget” that some countries did not immediately step in to save the ambassador’s life. Hassan Arilo’s daughter, Fatma, tweeted that “while the fall of Qassem Suleimani was a disaster for (former president) Trump, so the death of my father, with the help of Allah, will bring disaster to (Saudi Crown Prince, Muhammad) Ben Salman ..”. On her Twitter account, Fatma also posted photos from the course of her father’s hospitalization in Sanaa and Tehran.

A Saudi-led Arab coalition spokesman denied Iranian allegations that there was a delay in providing medical care to Hassan Irlo. The Saudi spokesman said Riyadh responded positively to mediation by Oman and Iraq and allowed Irlo for humanitarian reasons to leave Yemen in less than 48 hours.

To date, Iran and Saudi Arabia have held four rounds of talks, mediated by Iraq in Baghdad.
