Gen. Soleimani’s assassination, US biggest gift to Takfiri terrorism: Iran

Iran’s top security official says Washington’s assassination of senior Iranian anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani was the biggest gift from the US to Takfiri terrorism and its supporters.

US terrorists assassinated General Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy head of Iraq’s Hashd al-Sha’abi, and their companions by targeting their vehicles outside Baghdad International Airport on January 3.

The act of terror was carried out under the direction of US President Donald Trump, with the Pentagon taking responsibility for the strike.

Addressing a session on Saturday, Shamkhani said, “Resentment and grudge of the US and the Zionist regime (Israel) against … Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were due to their irreplaceable role in fighting Takfiri terrorism in the region and revealing the US’ anti-terrorism charade.”

He added that the world must appreciate the two commanders’ genuine battle against terrorism because their wise command and sincere efforts prevented the spread of Takfiri terrorism across the world.

A senior Iranian judge said on Monday that Interpol Red Notices have been issued for the prosecution of dozens of military and political officials of the United States, including President Donald Trump, on charges of planning and implementing the terrorist attack against General Soleimani and his companions.

“Thirty-six people who were involved in the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani have been identified, including political and military officials from the United States and other governments,” Tehran Prosecutor Ali Alqasi-Mehr said.

NBC News has revealed the details of the assassination, saying the terrorist operation used Israeli intelligence and was run from the US Central Command (CENTCOM) headquarters in Qatar.

Trump has doubled down on the insanity of General Soleimani’s assassination, saying he should have been killed “many years ago.”

In a series of tweets, he accused the top Iranian military commander of killing and wounding thousands of Americans over an extended period of time and “plotting to kill many more.”

General Soleimani is viewed by the world’s freedom-seeking people as the key figure in defeating Daesh, the world’s most notorious terrorist group, in the Middle East battles.

Several million people attended the funeral processions held for the commanders in the Iraqi cities of Kadhimiya, Baghdad, Karbala and Najaf as well as the Iranian cities of Ahvaz, Mashhad, Tehran, Qom and Kerman.
