His efforts after the victory of Islamic revolution were outstanding in arranging the Army and the structure of Armed Forces.

One of the most important activities that he did after the victory of Islamic Revolution, can be related to the war zone plans which lead to the breakage of siege of Sanandaj city and garrisons of Marivan, Baneh and Saghez.

Sanandaj city by establishment of Joint Staff Forces in the Army and Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps was able to break its siege after 21 days resistance and defense by its fighters. In fact after this operation the enemy an anti-revolutionary militants were pushed back from the city. After realization and successful implementation of these plans, martyr Sayad Shirazi got the degree of colonel and he was appointed as the commander of Western Operations of Iran.

During the final months of Bani Sadr presidency, due to having a revolutionary morale and standing against his treacheries, he was removed from his post and he worked as a member of Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps until the deposal of Bani Sadr and his coward escape from Iran to France. In fact he had worked there based on the invitation of martyr Kolahdooz.

Lieutenant General Ali Sayad Shirazi after deposal of Bani Sadr, he established a joint headquarters for the operation of Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and Army in order to end the lack of coordination between these two important military agents and he started his work as a senior commander in that Headquarters.

Remembering the significant victory:

In 1981 based on the offer of the excellent chief of defense, he was appointed as the commander of Ground Force of the Islamic Republic Army by Imam Khomeini. In this position, he was the commander of the great and victorious military operations such as Samen Al-Ameh, Tariq Al-Quds, Fathol-Mobin and Beitol-Moghadas.

This operation made the destiny of Islamic fighting against blasphemy as a victory and the procedure of the imposed war era as led towards the victory of Islamic Army of Iran. In 1986 within a verdict issued by Imam Khomeini, he was appointed as a member of Defense Excellence Council.

Following the dangerous responsibility of martyr Sayad Shirazi in the Defense Excellence Council by the request of the Head of Defense Excellence Council and agreement of Imam Khomeini the commandership of the Ground Force of Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army was given to someone else.

Imam Khomeini in the verdict of new commandership for the Ground Force of Army had described the great services of that martyr as follows: “We thank the great efforts of Colonel Sayad Shirazi who did many services for the Army of Islamic Republic of Iran and he was a committed man in all the affairs and we hope that in the future he will have the post who successfully perform valuable services for our country.”?

After that in 1987 along with some of the other commanders of Army based on the offer of the Chief of Defense Excellence Council and agreement of Imam Khomeini, he was appointed as the brigadier general.

That martyr in 1989 by the offer of the chief of General Armed Forces and agreement of the supreme leader and the commander of All armed forces he became the deputy of Investigation Staff of General Armed Forces.

The strong commander of Islam’s army in 1983, based on the verdict of the Commander of General Armed Forces he became the deputy chief of general Armed Forces.

Sayad Shirazi in 1999 at the same time with the holy celebration of Ghadir, he was appointed to the post of Major General by the demand of supreme leader.
His role for creation of unity between armed force of country and the strong defensive forces and controlling enemy and guarding the lands of country and the victories during different operations including Samen Al-Ameh, Tariq Al-Quds, Fathol-Mobin and Beitol-Moghadas and other victorious and operations such as Mersad and defending the Iranian territories has been clear for all the persons.

Martyrdom procedure:

Martyr Ali Sayad Shirazi was martyred on Saturday, April 10, 1999 when he was near his home. The terrorist agents assassinated him.

At 6:45 in the morning the lieutenant general Sayad Shirazi was going to his workplace by his car, he was attacked by an unknown man and he was critically injured.

The persons who were near the event, when the got aware of this issue, they took him to the hospital quickly, but since the injuries were so intensive for him, the efforts were not useful at all and he was martyred in the hospital.

As the witnesses said, the terrorist man had came near the house of the martyr with the uniform of a sweeper and he had opened fired towards him. This event took place when martyr had got on his car and he three bullets had hid him. In this event an spokesman of anti-revolutionary terrorists had accepted the responsibility of this assassination in an interview with AFP in Nikoziya.

The terror of martyr Sayad Shirazi is something which should be verified in the case of anti-revolutionary militants. The reasons that the anti-revolutionary militants had presented for assassination of him was due to this issue that this organization was seeking the hidden reasons and motivations.

The reasons of anti-revolutionary militants for the terror of Lieutenant General Sayad Shirazi in his military announcement had been defined in three categories; the role of Sayad Shirazi in defending the lands of Iran in the war against Iraq, his role in controlling the conflicts of Kurdistan during the revolution time of 1999 and his role in neutralizing the military operation known as ‘Eternal Light’ in which the anti-revolutionary militants by the support of Iraq had occupied the Iranian lands.

Sayad was the prey of past animosities:

The retired Brigadier General of the Army of Islamic Republic of Iran ‘Mustafa Kahtari’ was one of the comrades of martyr Sayad Shirazi. He in an exclusive interview with Isna said: “Sayad was someone that the history of war made a revenge on him; the past animosity made Sayad to be martyred. This action was done so unfairly.”?

Sayad could have driver, bodyguards and security forces, but he would not do that at all.

When I referred to him in the Joint Staff Office, he had a simple room and he would work in the same place as well.

His activities before martyrdom included compiling the history of war. He himself established a board named War Knowledge Board; he would take the commanders to the war zones and he would transfer the war knowledge in a practical form.

Kahtari described the memories of war era and the military operations in which Sayad took part in and he said: “In all the military operations which would be planned, he would personally visit the war zone and he would get confident about the work and then he would take part in the meetings and he would make the work so spiritual by reciting Koran verses in the meetings.”?

A section of supreme leader message:

The respectful commander of the Army of Islam and the honest and sacrificer soldier of religion and Koran, the pious military man and the great worshipper of God, Major General Ali Sayad Shirazi were martyred today by the hand of cruel anti-revolutionary militants.

It is not the first and last time that a shinny heart which is full of passion, belief, loyalty, great religious ambitions, and the objective of anger bullet and has been targeted by the bullet of criminals and murderers who can not see such great characteristics exist for Islam and they martyr these great persons of Islam. He was a great revolutionary many who devoted all of his life in the way of revolution and he sacrificed his life in the way of God and Islam as well.

The hot lands of Khuzistan province and the high mountainous areas of Kurdistan province observed the preparedness and sacrifices of this great many for several years. He was a serious, active and brave man and the battlefields of Iran-Iraq war have memorized hundreds of memories regarding his sacrifice, courage and strengths.

The death danger is smaller than what can return the real and pious worshippers of God. Having a passion for the materialistic belongings is more humble than what can stimulate the shinny hearts of God followers. The cruel and blind-hearted anti-revolutionary agents must know that the hatred of Iranian nation is getting increased day by day for them and the blood of some pious and great men such as martyr Sayad Shirazi and martyr Lajavardi will leave a dark and bad name for them in the history and the hearts of this nation will never forgive them…”?

The outlook of others:

The journal ‘Malin’ published in France in 1983 explained the honored commander of the Iranian Army as follows: “For Sayad Shirazi, the commander of the Ground Force of Iran’s Army, the key of victory is not dependent to tanks and missiles; but also it desponds only to belief in God.”?

A short height, obvious glance and the hands that have been decorated with agate rings and they have been put on the table of Joint Staff Forces describe his simple appearance.

This expert of artillery who had accomplished his professional military courses in the United States of America, today he is the commander of the Ground Force of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army and he is not afraid of formulas at all.

He simply says: “I’m a soldier for Islam.”?

His goal is suppressing the Iraqi Baathist regime only. Regarding his disputes and separation from Bani Sadr says: “We wanted to fight for God, but he wanted us to fight for him. He was the man of technique and policy; but I’m the man of Jihad and Sacred Defense.”?

Sayad Shirazi smiled in a hearty way and he reminds the consecutive victories of Iran: Our goal is not occupying a special land or city and we don’t aim to capture more lands or to occupy the whole Iraqi lands. Our defense will be continued as long as no danger to threaten us…You should say that the real forces of Islamic Revolution have not appeared yet. We would like to make the humans pure and honest. Those who are killed, they are killed in a great way and in fact they are dead in a victorious battle and it is important.”?
