Iran’s Raeisi: Revenge for the assassination of General Soleimani ‘definitive’
It’s the 3rd anniversary of Gen Suleimani’s assassination.
On Jan. 3, 2020, the U.S. military assassinated Soleimani in a drone strike near the Baghdad International Airport. The assassination was condemned by Iran as “state terrorism.”
Iran’s Foreign Affairs Minister Hosein Amir Abdolahian affirmed that his institution and the Judiciary seriously seek to bring to justice “the leaders and perpetrators of the terrorist crime carried out at the Baghdad airport.”
On Jan. 8, 2020, Iran responded to the assassination by launching missiles at the U.S. Ain al-Asad base in the Iraqi province of Anbar.
