US Failed to Kill Iranian Officer in Yemen in a Secret Operation: Report

The strike targeted Abdul Reza Shahlai, a financier and key Quds Force commander based in Yemen, but did not result in his death, the Post said, citing four unnamed US officials familiar with the mission. In December, the State Department offered a $15 million bounty for information on Shahlai’s location in Yemen, claiming he had a long history of plotting attacks against US and coalition targets. US-Iranian relations deteriorated further after the drone attack ordered by US President Donald Trump near the airport in Baghdad, which killed Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani last week. Iran retaliated on Wednesday by firing missiles at Iraqi bases hosting American forces. No one was injured as a result of the attack, according to Washington.
