The head of Iran’s Judiciary has vowed that revenge for the killing of Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleiman will deficiently take place.
Gholamhossein Mohseni-Ejei made the remark on Wednesday during a meeting with staff members in charge of holding the ceremonies for the second anniversary of Soleimani’s killing.
Soleimani was killed in a targeted US drone strike as he arrived at Baghdad airport on January 3, 2020.
Earlier in the week, the former head of Israel’s Military Intelligence, Major-General Tamir Hayman, confirmed his country’s role in the operation to kill the commander.
A lot of high-ranking Iranian military personnel and political figures, including Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei himself, have promised revenge for the Soleimani's targeted killing.
“They must know that whenever possible, at the appropriate time, they must face revenge”, Khamenei said some two weeks before the first anniversary of his killing.
Iran has listed a host of US and Israeli officials as responsible for carrying out the attack, ordered by former president Donald Trump.
