Iran will not forgive the Americans for the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani and will certainly answer them properly. This was stated by the leader and spiritual leader of Iran, Ali Khamenei, during negotiations with the Prime Minister of Iraq, Mustafa al-Kazim, reports TASS.
Khamenei called on Iraq to reconsider its relationship with the United States. He hopes that in Iraq they will understand who the Americans are and that in any country their presence is the result of only misfortune and destruction. At the same time, the Iranian leader stressed that Tehran does not interfere in relations between Baghdad and Washington.
Earlier, Iran executed the CIA informant Mahmoud Mousavi Majd, who indicated to the Americans the location of the commander of the Al-Quds special unit of the IRGC, General Suleimani. The convict, according to Tehran, was associated with the CIA and the Israeli intelligence service “Mossad”.
On January 3, a US airstrike on Baghdad airport killed Revolutionary Guard General Qasem Soleimani. In response, Tehran fired dozens of missiles at American targets in Iraq on the night of January 8. The operation that took place was named “Martyr of Suleimani”. The United States declared no casualties and minimal damage to military bases.
The Pentagon said that the order to kill Soleimani was personally issued by US President Donald Trump. This idea to the American leader could have been submitted by Secretary of State Michael Pompeo. The US believed the general was involved in attacks on coalition bases and the US embassy in Baghdad.
