New commander chosen for Khamenei’s protection guard

It was announced about 10 days ago that Brigadier General Ibrahim Jabari has been appointed as the new commander of Khamenei’s protection guards. The reason behind this appointment was not announced.

Background info:

Khamenei’s protection guard known as the Vali Amr Corps consists of 12,000 people. Ibrahim Jafari was appointed as the head of the Zanjan IRGC Base after the Iran Iraq war as a second brigadier. He was chosen as the head of the Qazvin IRGC Base in 2002 and in this post, suppressed the people in this city for six years. Seven months before the elections in 2009, Jabari was transferred to Tehran and was appointed as the deputy commander of the IRGC in Tehran. Eleven days before the elections, he was elected as deputy to the head of the Bassij, Hossein Taeb.

In this time, from June 15 to Aug. 16, 2009, the Bassij directly controlled everything in the capital along with the RGC and suppressed the post-election protests. In the first six months after the elections, Jabari acted as the senior deputy to Taeb in violently suppressing the protests. He has close contacts with Mesbah Yazdi. Yazdi who is a cleric is known as the godfather of Ahmadinejad. Jabari went to Qom on November 17, 2009 on orders of the head of the IRGC in Iran, Mohammad-Ali Jafari, and became the IRGC commander in this town. In the 12 months of his command, there were many protests in Qom. He played a major part in suppressing these protests. This IRGC official who has a history in suppression and committing crimes against the people has been chosen as the new head of protection for Khamenei.
