[Global News reporter Lee Toyo U.S.] Iran's top general, Suleimani, died last week in a U.S. air strike after his successor, Ismail Ismail, a new commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Al-Quds Brigade. Esmail Ghaani spoke out on Saturday, vowing to avenge the American killing of Suleimani, saying \"in return for his martyrdom, our goal is to drive America out of the region.\"
According to the Islamic Republic of Iran's news agency, IRNA, Ismael said:'It's very important that I'm not the only one in the world. General Carney said in Tehran on Saturday:\" We are committed to following the path of the martyrs of Sulaimani as firmly as ever. His martyrdom will be rewarded in a few steps to drive America out of the region.
In the early hours of Wednesday morning, U.S. forces launched a drone strike at Iraq's Baghdad International Airport, killing Al-Quds Brigade brigade commander Suleimani, described by foreign media as a \"key general,\" and the actual leader of Iraq's Shi'ite militia, the People's Mobilization Group, Mohammadis.
IRNA reports that the funeral of martyr Suleimani will be held in several Iranian cities, including Awaz, Mashhad and Tehran, so that millions of Iranians can pay their final respects to the martyrs.
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei today commented on the martyrdom of Suleimani that \"harsh retaliation is coming on these criminals \".
