Iran has vowed to hold the United States accountable for the assassination of Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Special Forces Commander Qassem Soleimani.

“Under false pretenses and statements, including under the guise of the fight against terrorism, the US government, which is a crime and a gross violation of the dogmas and principles of international law, planned and carried out a terrorist attack on one of our high-ranking officials in the territory of a third country, when he was in Iraq on an official assignment,” the statement said.


On the night of January 3, 2020, as a result of an operation carried out by the United States in the area of ​​Baghdad International Airport, an Iranian general, commander of the special forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Qasem Soleimani and deputy head of the Iraqi Shiite militia Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were killed.


In Washington, they were suspected of involvement in organizing the attack on the American embassy in Baghdad on December 31, 2019.
