Iran Ready To Retaliate Death Of General, Killed By US

Following the heated death of the Iran general, Qasem Suleimani, Iran has reportedly set in motion its threat to America that it would retaliate the killing of military commander.

Hours after the incident, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei appointed a tough Brigadier General, Esmail Qaani (Ghaani), as the new commander.

In his announcement, Khamenei described Qaani as “one of the most distinguished Revolutionary Guard commanders”.

Qaani was a close and trusted aide to Soleimani, and fought in the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s. He also served as an intelligence official in the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC).

Qaani is known for his extremist opposition to Israel, similar to Soleimani, and was one of the key figures in Iran’s involvement in the Syrian civil war.
