El general Suleimani era un héroe en Irán

By Duncan Mil

January 3, 2020 - EUA mató al poderoso líder militar de Irán general Qassem Soleimani – jefe de la Fuerza Quds de élite de la Guardia Revolucionaria Islámica (GRI) – en un ataque con un dron en Irak.

The 62-year old was killed at Baghdad airport, alongside Abu Mahdi al Muhandis, deputy commander of the Popular Mobilisation Forces (Hashed al-Shaabi), early on Friday in a strike ordered by President Donald Trump.

Gen Soleimani’s assassination marks a major escalation in tensions between Washington and Tehran.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said “severe revenge” awaits those behind the attack. He also announced three days of national mourning.

Global oil prices have soared by more than 4% in the wake of the attack.
