#Soleimani : The tale about the death of an arrogant and ambitious torturer of his own people.

The head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, has been killed in a strike near Baghdad International Airport, along with senior leaders of the Iraqi Shia militia, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has confirmed.

News of the commander’s demise was carried by Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency, citing the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).


Earlier, Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) blamed the US and Tel Aviv for Soleimani's takedown.

"The American and Israeli enemy is responsible for killing the mujahideen Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qassem Soleimani," said Ahmed al-Assadi, a spokesman for Iraq's PMF, as cited by Reuters.
Al-Muhandis is the deputy chief of the PMF, the umbrella group of Shia militias integrated into the Iraq’s armed forces, which was blamed for the siege of the US Embassy in Baghdad earlier this week.
Al-Muhandis and Soleimani were apparently in a convoy traveling near the Baghdad airport when it was struck by multiple missiles. The PMF earlier confirmed the deaths of five of its members and two “guests.”
Reuters reported that the Pentagon has claimed responsibility for the strike, citing an unnamed US official.

US rockets have destroyed two SUVs packed with Iranian and Iraqi high-ranking officials at Baghdad airport, killing all 10 passengers, including the head of Iranian elite Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, Tehran’s envoy to Iraq said.
According to Ambassador Iraj Masjedi, the convoy was en route from the airport to Baghdad when it was hit by airstrikes on Friday morning.

Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Shia paramilitary Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), was killed alongside Soleimani.

US Marines also reportedly captured two other influential Iraqi militia figures around the time of the strikes – Qais Khazali, head of the paramilitary group Asaib Ahl al-Haq, and Badr Organization leader Hadi al-Amiri – in a neighborhood of Baghdad, according to Al Arabiya.

PMU officials earlier confirmed that several “important guests” had perished together with the militias, blaming “the American and Israeli enemy” for their deaths. Masjedi said the victims’ bodies will be delivered to Iran “as soon as possible.”

Later in the day, the Pentagon admitted that US President Donald Trump had ordered the killing of Soleimani “to protect US personnel abroad.”


Muhammad Reza Al-Jabri, director of public relations at the PMU, was reportedly killed in the strike. The two vehicles were captured on video burning on the road leading to the airport.

Hours after the attack, the PMU confirmed the death of its PR director, calling the alleged retaliatory sortie a “cowardly US bombing,” according to Reuters.


The incident forced the airport into an immediate shutdown. All inbound and outbound flights have been canceled or diverted for the time being.


The airport is located next to the Baghdad Diplomatic Support Center (BDSC), which is used by diplomats and intelligence operatives, as well as the US-led anti-terrorist coalition forces in Iraq. The area is also home to the joint counter-terrorism center.












The strikes come amid soaring tensions between Tehran and Washington over recent events in Iraq. A US air raid on an Iraqi Shia militia last weekend triggered a heated demonstration at the US embassy complex in Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone on Tuesday. Protesters smashed windows, lit fires and chanted anti-American slogans. Washington insisted the raid was in retaliation for a militia rocket attack on a US base in Kirkuk, and that Iran provided backing for the assault, though it offered no evidence for the claim.

While still lacking official confirmation that Washington was behind the assassinations, some US lawmakers have already challenged the legality of the supposed American raid, as Congress was apparently left in the dark about the mission. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) weighed in with a tweet later on Thursday, sounding alarm that the unauthorized operation could kick off a “massive regional war,” even though Soleimani was an “enemy of the United States.”
