TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the January assassination of top Iranian commander Lt. General Qassem Soleimani united the region against the US arrogance and presence.
“Last year, across the region, from Iran and Iraq to India and Pakistan, people showed disgust for murderers of General Soleimani,” the Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a post on its Twitter account on Wednesday.
“His blood united our region in opposing US arrogance and presence. A real response to recklessness,” it noted.
“The anger and unity still stand,” the post added.
On January 3, a US drone strike near Baghdad International Airport assassinated General Soleimani, former commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps. The attack — that also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) anti-terror group, along with several others— came while General Soleimani was on an official visit to the Iraqi capital.
