Iranian Leader Sobs Over Soleimani's Coffin As Threats To America Flow
Soleimani’s daughter declared a “dark day” for the United States lays ahead
Iran's leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei cried as he prayed over the coffin of terror chief Qasem Soleimani who was killed by a U.S. airstrike last week.
Soleimani’s daughter declared a “dark day” for the United States lays ahead.
Zeinab Soleimani warned the US in her own address broadcast on state television:
“Crazy Trump, don’t think that everything is over with my father’s martyrdom."
Elsewhere state television reported a “several million-strong” turnout that witnessed supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who promised, “severe revenge” for the attack ordered by President Donald Trump.
Khamenei wept alongside the flag-draped coffins containing the remains of Soleimani, and other “martyrs” killed in the strike.
Semi-official news agency ISNA reported that the streets of Tehran were so full of people that people could not emerge from underground metro stations.
According to reports, there were chants of “Death to infidels,” “Death to seditionists,” and “Death to al-Saud” — referring to the Saudi ruling - were heard as people viewed the coffin.
Earlier Tehran’s parliament rang to the cries of “death to America” as lawmakers said goodbye to a man who visited terror on the Islamic Republic’s enemies both at home and abroad.
Brigadier-General Esmail Ghaani, the new commander of the IRGC Quds Forces, said Iran is planning to strike back at the U.S. and eliminate its presence from the Middle East:
"We promise to continue Martyr Soleimani’s path with the same strength, and his martyrdom will be reciprocated in several steps by removing the U.S. from the region.”
“The continuance of this movement is to reach the global governance of Imam Mahdi (May God Hasten His Reappearance).
"This important goal will be attained under the Supreme Leader.”
“The revenge for Soleimani’s martyrdom is a promise given by God, as the God is the main avenger,” he said.
Meanwhile, an Islamic terrorist group launched an attack against a military base in Africa used by US forces, seemingly in retaliation for the killing of Soleimani.
The military base in Kenya came under attack in the early hours of Sunday morning by Somalia’s largest Islamic terrorist organization Al Shababb.
