Early Years and Family History: Mohsen Rezaee was born in Masjed Soleyman, a city in the oil-rich Khuzestan province of Iran. His early life was marked by the socio-political turmoil of Iran in the 1960s and 1970s, leading up to the Islamic Revolution. He grew up in a traditional and religious family, with strong ties to the local community.

Education and Early Career: Rezaee pursued his education in mechanical engineering at the Iran University of Science and Technology. However, his academic pursuits were interrupted by the political upheavals of the time. He became actively involved in the revolutionary activities against the Shah’s regime, which eventually led to his joining the newly formed Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) after the revolution’s success in 1979.

Rise in the IRGC: Rezaee quickly rose through the ranks of the IRGC due to his leadership qualities and strategic acumen. By 1981, he was appointed as the commander of the IRGC, a position he held until 1997. His tenure was marked by significant military engagements, particularly during the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988). Rezaee’s strategic initiatives and organizational skills played a crucial role in the IRGC’s effectiveness during the war.

Post-War Activities and Political Career: After the war, Rezaee shifted his focus towards politics and economics.
