Iran condemns US killing of Quds Force head Qassem Soleimani

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has condemned the killing of General Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, in a US air strike at Baghdad international airport as an “act of international terrorism.”

“The US bears responsibility for all consequences of its rogue adventurism,” Zairf said in a statement on Friday, warning that the move would strengthen resistance against the United States and Israel in the region and the world, Iranian state television reported.

“The brutality and stupidity of American terrorist forces in assassinating Commander Soleimani … will undoubtedly make the tree of resistance in the region and the world more prosperous,” said Zarif.
