Ismail Ghaani, the successor of slain Iranian Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani, vowed to work towards the expulsion of US troops from the region, speaking to a journalist shortly after his appointment, in Tehran on Monday.

“Our promise is to continue the path of martyr Soleimani. Due to the martyrdom of Soleimani, our promise will be the expulsion of the US from the region in different steps, and continuing to expand the global governance of Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi,” he said.

“Regarding his revenge, God has promised his revenge, and the main avenger is God, and something will certainly be done. Avenging these valuable drops of blood however will continue until the main avenger who is Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi (AS) comes,” he said, refering to Shia Twelver Muslims’ eschatological redeemer.

Soleimani and the deputy leader of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) Mohammed Ali Ebrahimi, also known as Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and other militia leaders were killed in a US airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport on Friday.

The Pentagon released a statement confirming that the US had carried out the airstrike at the order of US President Donald Trump, calling it a “defensive action to protect US personnel abroad.” Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei promised to retaliate.

Golden rule : what you wish to others, you wish to yourself… I wouldn’t be too surprise if in the end, it was the Iranian regime that ended expelled from the Mid-East and moved to the Hague and/or Gitmo. Ismail Ghaani should be careful what he wishes for : the path of Soleimani ended crossed by 4 Hellfire missiles… Moreover, he wasn’t wrapped tight : it was absolutely dumb to land in Baghdad and meet with the Iraqi Hezbollah’s boss just after these puppets attacked the US embassy! I wouldn’t be too surprised had Khamenei himself “given” Soleimani to the… Read more »

You forgot to mention that Israel had no involvement in the senseless assassination of Solemnity.
