Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khemenei, confirmed that those who planned and carried out the assassination of General Qassem Suleimani would certainly pay the price, adding that this revenge will inevitably take place whenever possible.
In this regard, Imam Khamenei reiterated the famous stance made by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah while mourning the martyr on January 5, saying: “Suleimani’s shoe is worth more than Trump’s head.”
Imam Khamenei made the remarks in his meeting with a group of organizers of the anniversary ceremony and the family of Martyr Suleimani on Wednesday on the eve of the first anniversary of the martyrdom of Lt. General Qassem Suleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.
He called Martyr Suleimani the hero of the Iranian nation and the Islamic Ummah, saying, “The funeral of martyrs Suleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in Iraq and Iran was the first severe slap in the face to the Americans but a tougher slap is software overcoming the absurd hegemony of arrogance and expelling the United States from the region.”
“Of course, revenge must be taken from the assassins of Gen. Soleimani, and this revenge will be definitely taken whenever possible,” he added.
Criticizing Europe’s hypocritical role, Imam Khamenei urged Iranian authorities and people for strengthening in all areas, not trusting the enemy, preserving the national unity and looking for ways to defuse sanctions rather than ways to lift them.
