General Soleimani’s death ‘pumped new blood into the veins of the Resistance’: Iran envoy to Syria

The Islamic Republic marked the one year anniversary of Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani on Sunday, with the general widely admired in his native Iran and throughout much of the Middle East for his assistance in squashing Daesh (ISIS)* and al-Qaeda* terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

The assassination of Qasem Soleimani has added fresh impetus to the resistance against the US and Israel, and will hasten America’s ultimate expulsion from the Middle East, Iranian Ambassador to Syria Javad Torkabadi has said.

Speaking at a ceremony in Damascus on Thursday dedicated to Soleimani and his support for Syria in its decade-long battle with terrorism, Torkabadi said that “the criminal act of assassinating General Soleimani was a violation of international law,” and “will bring ultimate defeat for the United States in the region.”
