Gholam Ali Oveisi
Gholam Ali Oveisi (1918 - died 8 February 1984) was an Iranian general during the Pahlavi dynasty, prior to the 1979 Iranian Revolution. On September 7, the Shah appointed Oveisi, then-chief of army staff, as the military governor of the capital city, Tehran.
Following the deposing of Emperor Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Oveisi was one of several Iranian generals who undertook to gain support for a counter-revolution against the new Iranian government in the United States, other Western countries, and the Muslim world. Along with other deposed generals such as Reza Keyvani and Bahram Aryana, Oveisi sought out allies, such as Iran's enemy, Baathist Iraq.
