Replacement named for Gen. Qassem Soleimani, report says


Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Friday declared a substitution for the killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani who was slaughtered in a U.S. airstrike requested by President Trump close to the Baghdad International Airport in Iraq only hours sooner.

Brigadier General Esmail Ghaani, who filled in as Soleimani’s appointee officer since 1997, will assume control over the steerage as leader of the nation’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ world class Quds Force, Reuters reported, refering to Iranian state media.

Khamenei said in an explanation that the program entrusted with carrying on Iran’s impact by means of intermediaries over the Middle East “will be unaltered from the hour of his ancestor.”

Iranian state media revealed that Ghaani recently cautioned Trump in 2017 that “dangers against Iran will harm America.

“We are not a war-mongering country. But any military action against Iran will be regretted,” he reportedly said, according to Newsweek. “We have buried many … like Trump and know how to fight against America.”

The Pentagon affirmed Thursday evening that Trump had requested the assault that killed Soleimani and other military authorities at Baghdad International Airport in Iraq. Iran’s top “shadow leader” was liable for the passings of several American and alliance administration individuals and the injuring of thousands more, the State Department said.
