Iran’s Qassem Soleimani: Global mass killer


Iran’s Qassem Soleimani: Global mass killer

Al Arabiya

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani was an “evil man” responsible for killing thousands, US Vice President Mike Pence said on Friday.

Soleimani was “directly responsible” for the death of 603 US service members, in addition to thousands wounded, Pence said in a tweet.

Soleimani wasn’t just directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of Americans, but thousands around the world.

He was “one of the most notorious criminals in Iranian history, who had the blood of hundreds of thousands of the people in Iran and the region,” according to Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director of the US office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI-US).

Soleimani’s legacy will include his kill record from the Middle East to South America.

In Lebanon, Soleimani was suspected of being involved in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri, according to a 2013 article in the New Yorker, which reported that the senior investigator for the UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon suspected Iranian involvement in the murder.
