The hatred of the US and the Israeli regime toward Lieutenant General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis was because of their irreplaceable role in the fight against the Takfiri terrorism and revealing the US anti-terrorism show in the region, Shamkhani said, IRNA reported.
“The world should appreciate the efforts and sacrifices of these two commanders in the real fight against terrorism, because their wise command and sincere efforts prevented the spread of Takfiri terrorism across the world”, the Iranian official made the remarks in a meeting in Tehran.
On January 3, the US assassinated Lieutenant General Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, and Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), and a group of their companions in Baghdad. The operation was conducted with the authorization of US President Donald Trump. The US Department of Defense took responsibility for the assassination.
A senior Iranian judge said on Monday that Interpol Red Notices have been issued for the prosecution of dozens of military and political officials of the United States, including Trump, on charges of planning and implementing the terrorist attack against Lieutenant General Soleimani and his companions, Press TV wrote.
"Thirty-six people, who were involved in the assassination of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, have been identified, including political and military officials from the United States and other governments," Tehran Prosecutor Ali Alqasi-Mehr said.
Trump has doubled down on the insanity of Lieutenant General Soleimani's assassination, saying he should have been killed “many years ago.”
In a series of tweets, he accused the top Iranian military commander of killing and wounding thousands of Americans over an extended period of time and “plotting to kill many more.”
Lieutenant General Soleimani is viewed by the world's freedom-seeking people as the key figure in defeating Daesh, the world’s most notorious terrorist group, in the West Asia battles.
