Qassim Soleimani was head of Iran’s Quds Force, a designated terrorist organization.

Iran’s top general, Qassim Soleimani, has been killed in an airstrike at Baghdad International Airport.

Soleimani is responsible for the deaths of many of our American allies, with Iranian-backed terrorist groups launching attacks on US soldier.

Along with Soleimani, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis was also killed.

Al-Muhandis was the deputy commander of the PMF, an Iranian-backed militia that recently killed an American in a rocket attack, and launched an incursion at the US Embassy in Iraq.

The airstrike on Soleimani followed a warning by US President Donald Trump in response to the attack on the US embassy:

“The U.S. Embassy in Iraq is, & has been for hours, SAFE! Many of our great Warfighters, together with the most lethal military equipment in the world, was immediately rushed to the site. Thank you to the President & Prime Minister of Iraq for their rapid response upon request….”

“….Iran will be held fully responsible for lives lost, or damage incurred, at any of our facilities. They will pay a very BIG PRICE! This is not a Warning, it is a Threat. Happy New Year!”

According to reports, US forces in the Middle East have been placed on high alert, due to possible retaliation from Iran.
