General Soleimani’s blood revenge becomes a strategy: IRGC commander
In an interview with Khamenei.ir, Major General Hossein Salami said the US assassination of Lt. Gen. Soleimani had sparked a “revolution in hearts” and impressed the character of young people.
He said the bombing had created millions of supporters of General Soleimani, all of whom were seeking revenge.
“Right now, revenge has become a strategy, a wish, an aspiration and a starting point,” the commander noted, saying that the enthusiasm of young people for the battle against the enemy has increased after the martyrdom of General Soleimani.
“It would create danger for the enemy,” he warned.
General Soleimani, commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force, along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and several of their companions, were assassinated in a US airstrike authorized by the US President then-Donald Trump near Baghdad International Airport on January 3. , 2020.
General Soleimani and al-Muhandis both played key roles in defeating the terrorist group Takfiri Daesh, which at its height threatened to take complete control of Iraq and Syria.
Iraqi lawmakers unanimously approved a bill in January 2020, requiring the withdrawal of all US-led foreign military forces from the country following the assassination of the two counterterrorism commanders.
