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.
