Iran warns the United States of final revenge for Soleimani’s assassination


TEHRAN, May 20 (IANS) A senior Iranian military commander said Iran’s final revenge on the United States for the assassination of the country’s supreme leader, Qassem Soleimani, is yet to come.

Hossein Salami, Commander-in-Chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, made the remarks during a speech at a commemoration ceremony held in the central province of Isfahan, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Friday.

Commenting on Tehran’s revenge for the US assassination of Soleimani in January 2020, Salami said that Iran delivered its first “slap” by firing missiles at the US base of Ain al-Assad in the Iraqi province of Anbar a few days after Soleimani was killed.

And the New China News Agency (Xinhua) reported that “the second slap is nothing but the gradual withdrawal of the United States from the region,” indicating that the “third slap” has not yet been delivered.

On January 3, 2020, the US military assassinated Soleimani with a drone strike near Baghdad International Airport. Iran condemned the assassination, describing it as “state terrorism”.

In January of this year, a senior Iranian judicial official said that 94 American citizens are accused of involvement in the Soleimani assassination, stressing that no one will be safe from prosecution in this case.
