TEHRAN (Web Desk) – Zeinab Soleimani, the daughter of Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani on Monday said that his father devoted his life to serve the country and warned that her father s death "will cause more awakening in the resistance front" and "will bring darker days" for the United States and Israel.
According to Iranian media reports, while speaking in front of a large crowd at her father s funeral procession at Tehran University on Monday, Zeinab Soleimani said President Trump s "evil plan to cause separation between two nations of Iraq and Iran" by killing Soleimani and Iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis "has failed."
She said that the late General had been engaged in combat with enemies of the country for 40 years, adding that her father was longing for martyrdom. She said the General was proud of being the soldier of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
He had scared the Takfiri groups, tyrants as well as the oppressors to death, she underlined. She said that even the name of Qasem Soleimani is frightening the den of the Zionist regime.
Lieutenant General Soleimani was the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force commander who was assassinated by the US alongside the acting Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), known as the Hash al-Shaabi, Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes, and eight other military forces who were fighting the Daesh (ISIS) forces in Iraq.
The body of General Soleimani and the acting Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), known as the Hashd al-Shaabi, Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes and other martyrs of the US state terrorism was first taken from Iraq in Ahvaz, the southern city of Iran, on Sunday.
His next destination was Mashad, northeastern Iran. He was welcomed by millions of people gathering together from the city and all the cities and towns around it. The number of people was so many that the Islamic Republic Guard Corps could not transfer the body to Tehran until after midnight.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Monday led mass prayers for the beloved Martyr Qasem Soleimani.
