hamenei appoints new chief commander for Iran's Guards: state TV
DUBAI: Iran’s top authority Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has replaced the chief commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards, state TV reported Sunday, days after the United States designated the group as a foreign terrorist organization.

TV did not give a reason for the appointment of Brigadier General Hossein Salami.

"The Supreme Leader has appointed Salami as the new commander-in-chief of the Guards, who will replace Mohammad Ali Jafari," it said.
