In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious the Ever-compassionate
The tragic martyrdom of the great general of Islam and the unique commander, Hajj Ghasem Soleimani was truly shocking for us all.
He was a great man and a unique and insightful commander; his name will remain in the history of Islam and the world as a great general, inspiring countless others to continue on his path.
The American terrorists have dug their own graves with this heinous act of terror, and a severe revenge awaits them.
I hereby extend my deepest condolences to all of his friends, family, and all of the free-spirited people and the soldiers of Islam on his martyrdom as well as the martyrdom of his friends, particularly general Abu-Mahdi al-Muhandis. I have no doubt that those who looked up to him will continue on his path with power and might.
