Martyr Soleimani’s Legacy Lives On: IRGC Commander
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami highlighted the success of Lt. General Qassem Soleimani in thwarting enemy plots, stressing that the legacy of the popular commander, who was assassinated by the US a year ago, will continue on.
Addressing a ceremony held on Thursday in the southern city of Kerman, the IRGC chief said General Soleimani’s art was foiling the political, geographical and military schemes of the adversaries.
He added that General Soleimani had taken revenge for his assassination tens of times before martyrdom by defeating the enemies and foiling their plots.
“The legacy of Hajj Qassem lives on and we will not stop at this point,” Majro General Salami said, adding, “We will remain faithful to his sublime ideals … and continue his path.”
General Soleimani was the former commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC). He was assassinated by a US strike on January 3, 2020, when he was on an official visit to the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
Hitting his convoy, the barbaric assault also led to the martyrdom of many others, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) or Hashd al-Sha’abi anti-terror force.
Recently, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei vowed that those behind the assassination of the top commander will definitely face revenge whenever possible.
