General Soleimani's assassination US biggest gift to Takfiri terrorists

Tehran, July 4, IRNA - Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani described the assassination of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani as the US' biggest gift to takfiri terrorists and their allies.

Speaking in a meeting on following up the case of assassinating Iranian commander and his companions, Shamkhani said the grudge of the US and the Zionist regime against General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes was due to their significant role in fighting takfiri terrorism and decrying the US' anti-terrorism show.

The world should appreciate the sacrifices of these two commanders in fighting terrorism since their wise and sincere command prevented the spread of takfiri terrorism sedition in the world.

Earlier, Tehran Prosecutor Ali Qasi Mehr said Iran through Interpol has ordered arresting 36 US political and military officials, including President Donald Trump, who were involved in the assassination of Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani.

Referring to the measures taken with regard to pursuing General Soleimani's case, Qasi Mehr said 36 people consisting of American political and military officials who were involved in the assassination of the Iranian commander have been investigated and were ordered to be arrested through Interpol.  

He noted that these people have been charged with murder and terrorist acts.

At the top of the list is US President Donald Trump, and his prosecution will continue even after the end of his term.

Lieutenant General Soleimani who was the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps' (IRGC) Quds Force commander was assassinated by the US along with the acting Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), known as Hashd al-Shaabi, Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes, and eight other military forces with a record of fighting the Daesh (ISIS) in Iraq.

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called for proportionate military action against the US interests in response to the heinous crime against the Iranian Commander who was on an official mission to Baghdad.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) targeted the US airbase of Ain al-Assad in Al-Anbar province in western Iraq.
