Iran’s IRGC chief: “Mr. Trump! Our revenge for martyrdom of our great general is obvious, serious and real.”
Iran has renewed its terror threats against the United States and President Donald Trump over the killing of terrorist mastermind Qassem Soleimani in an airstirke earlier this year. The latest threat was issued by Hossein Salami, chief of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the regime’s military and foreign terrorist arm.
“Mr. Trump! Our revenge for martyrdom of our great general is obvious, serious and real,” Salami said this week referring to Soleimani who was targeted on President Trump’s order while he was “actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region,” according to the Pentagon.
Soleimani, who guided the activities of Hezbllah and other terrorist groups in Iraq and the Middle East, was also directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. and coalition service members.
The Associated Press, on Saturday, reported the latest Iranian threats:
The chief of Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard threatened Saturday to go after everyone who had a role in a top general’s January killing during a U.S. drone strike in Iraq.
The guard’s website quoted Gen. Hossein Salami as saying, “Mr. Trump! Our revenge for martyrdom of our great general is obvious, serious and real.”
U.S. President Donald Trump warned this week that Washington would harshly respond to any Iranian attempts to take revenge for the death of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, tweeting that “if they hit us in any way, any form, written instructions already done we’re going to hit them 1000 times harder.”
The president’s warning came in response to a report that Iran was plotting to assassinate the U.S. ambassador to South Africa in retaliation for Soleimani’s killing at Baghdad’s airport at the beginning of the year.
“We took out the world’s number one terrorist and the mass murderer of American troops and many, many troops and many people all over the world,” Trump said. “Qasem Soleimani is dead. He’s dead. Bad guy. Bad guy. Very bad guy.”
After Soleimani was killed to thwart planned attacks on U.S. diplomats and servicemen, the regime is pushing ahead with similar terror plots, news reports suggest. The Iranian regime and its proxy terrorist groups have relentlessly fired rockets at the U.S. embassy and military bases in Iraq — even months before Soleimani’s elimination.
The U.S. intelligence last week uncovered an Iranian terror plot to target the American ambassador to South Africa. According to intelligence reports, the Iranian regime has been planning an assassination attempt against the U.S. envoy. “The Iranian Embassy in Pretoria is involved in the plot,” Politico reported last Sunday quoting U.S. officials.
The threats by the IRGC chief are in line with Iranian leader Ayatollah Khamenei’s call for ‘jihad’ against the U.S. following the airstrike that killed Salami and his top terrorist associates. “All Enemies should know that the jihad of resistance will continue with a doubled motivation, and a definite victory awaits the fighters in the holy war,” Khamenei declared on state television in early January amid chants of “Death to America” by his followers.
Khamenei’s call for jihad was supported by Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, who heads the Iranian-backed terrorist group in Lebanon. He urged “all resistance fighters worldwide” to join Khamenei’s jihad against the U.S. and its allies.
