Airstrike that killed top Iranian general

Airstrike that killed top Iranian general

"Oh, by the way, it might still happen", Milley said, referring to the planned attacks.

As stated by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution in his recent message, a tough revenge is awaiting the criminals who spilled the noble blood of General Soleimani. Iran vowed to retaliate for the attack.

"The great nation of Iran will take revenge for this heinous crime", tweeted Hassan Rouhani, the president of Iran, after the US claimed responsibility for the act in a statement Thursday night. In a series of clashes with USA forces defending the gate, the two sides exchanged volleys of rocks and teargas. "You're damn right there's risk".

The Pentagon said the strike was carried out to prevent Soleimani from executing plans to attack US diplomats and civilians, and described the move as defensive.

Thousands of people took to the streets of Tehran on Friday after the killing of Qassem Soleimani, who led Iran's military operations in the Middle East, in the U.S. strike at Baghdad International Airport. Today we remember and honor the victims of Soleimani's many atrocities and take comfort in knowing that his reign of terror is over.

Democrats in Congress questioned the administration's approach, while making clear they don't regret Soleimani's demise. Sen.

He added that an all-out war between the USA and Iran "would make the conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq look like a walk in the park". "The killer of Syria's children has been killed, the killer of Iraq's free people has been killed", he said in a post on social media. "I hope they're successful on that". Without doubt, the path of Jihad and Resistance shall continue with doubled motivation and the tree of resistance shall get stronger and thinker on a daily basis.

The U.S. was not without backers in its decision, however.

"While Iran will never be able to properly admit it", Trump added, "Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country". So how come the martyrdom of General Soleimani could create an impediment? Iran has been punching back.

The U.S. State Department issued a warning to American citizens to leave Iraq in the wake of the attack. The U.S. called that an "act of war", but did not respond, except by sending more American troops to the region. Contrary to Khamenei's taunt, Trump could do many things, ranging from tightening the economic sanctions that have already cost Iran dearly, to striking Iran's proxies, as with last Sunday's bombing of Muhandis's Kataieb Hezbollah.

"There was an imminent attack [against the US], the orchestrator, the primary motivator for the attack was Qasem Soleimani.There would have been many Muslims killed as well, Iraqis and people in other countries as well". A December 27 rocket attack near Kirkuk killed an American contractor and wounded US and Iraqi soldiers.
