Four Senior Iranian Officers Killed In U.S. Attack To Kill Soleimani: Quds Force

IRGC members

Iran’s Quds Force announced on January 3 that four officers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) were killed alongside Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani in the recent U.S. strikes on the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

A statement by the Quds Force identified the four commanders as:

  • Gen. Hussein Jaafari Naya;
  • Col. Shahroud Muzaffari Niya;
  • Maj. Hadi Tarmi;
  • Capt. Waheed Zamanian.

The four commanders were reportedly escorting Maj. Gen. Soleimani. They were aboard the two vehicles which were targeted by U.S. warplanes near Baghdad airport in the early hours of January 2.

The airstrikes also claimed the lives of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) and the units’ Public Affairs official, Mohamad al-Jabiri.

The U.S. confirmed its responsibility for the airstrikes, claiming that Maj. Gen. Soleimani was plotting attacks against U.S. troops in the Middle East.

Iran’s senior officials, including the Islamic country’s Supreme Leader, vowed a crushing response to the assassination of Maj. Gen. Soleimani and his comrades. For now, Tehran appointed Brig. Gen. Esmail Gha’ani as the new commander of the Quds Force.

      1. bob says:

        Oh its great isn’t it!

        What’s slightly irksome though is how the MSM keep referring to this terrorist by his military rank, he didn’t have a military rank he was a criminal terrorist, after all the MSM wouldn’t have referred to the IRA by giving them military ranks would they?

      Exactly, respect!

  3. IMHO says:

    Always “preventing an imminent attack”. That’s about like Pompeo saying Americans are more safe now because of the attack while at the same time urging Americans to leave Iraq for fear of retaliation.
    What a bunch of double tongued bastards.

    Iran has just been galvanized together and they will get their revenge

      from your mouth to Gods ears

  5. Mehmet Aslanak says:

    Trump would never approve assassination of Iraqi military ranks accompanied an Iranian general. Fake US media tells you that Trump ordered the attack. Actually Trump had to defend rogue generals in Pentagon after the attack. That’s why Trump just posted an US flag on Twitter. He has no word to say because he was not consulted.

    1. Ronald says:

      Tend to think you’re right. Normally he is the first to tweet bragging about whatever.
      Instead we get a statement, “The Pentagon said….”
      I am sure there are many, unhappy high ranking US officers aware that they have suddenly become targets at any airport.

      1. Mehmet Aslanak says:

        That’s why Trump later tweeted; ” Iran never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!” Trump still tries to recover situation with negotiations, after rebel generals in Pentagon
        risked all US citizens around the world to an Iranian attack.

        1. Assad must stay (gr8rambino) says:

          who are these rogue generals and why doesnt trump just fire them?

          1. goingbrokes says:

            Trump is surrounded with people who are rogue, and virtually every decent appointment he has made the rogues have managed to dismiss them. It is a very tough and complicated game.

      2. Hasbara Hunter says:

        American Cannonfodder are all Hard & Legal Targets…wait till this War starts….

      You are dreaming the Trump is a good man dream. Wake up, it’s no good going dreaming through life…

    4. jm74 says:

      Rubbish. Trump is POTUS and if has no say as you suggest then why have a President? Trump is guilty as he is also guilty of numerous civil criminal acts and he happens to belong to the criminal elements. Having Trump and the like as president actually goes to show how far down the cesspit the US has gone.

      1. goingbrokes says:

        How can you have any say if rogue elements in your government do things behind your back? Sometimes in order to manipulate your actions. Why have a president? Because people demand it, the deep state can operate just fine without a president, but they too prefer to have one to give them legitimacy. Trump has not been playing ball and the deep state is very pissed with him.

        1. jm74 says:

          Trump has to sign off and that is a part of the POTUS role. Also, the responsibilities start from the top and that is universal.

          1. goingbrokes says:

            On paper yes, but that’s not how things are done in Washington. Study the swamp and be amazed.

  7. Peter Jennings says:

    Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani maybe should have known better than to work in Iraq. He would know that Iraq is infested with US forces and spooks. They have the run of the place.
    The pentagon doesn’t do fair, and it probably threw the isreali regime under the bus in the process. Their reckless actions may well have caused a long overdue united stand against american aggression throughout the region. All the zionist ‘acheivements’ over the last century may be undone.

    US will not be getting away with this anytime soon

      Us drone strike just hit another convoy of PMU & Iraqi officials !

  9. verner says:

    and putin must not must not visit tel aviv now in january – let netanyahu fly to moscow if he wish to see putin. after this later american fuckup, tel aviv can’t be deemed safe, for putin or Xi or anyone else.

    1. Manofjustice says:

      These Us fucks need to be taught a lesson they’ll never forget, they killed another group of PMU commanders like half an hour ago…

      1. Jake321 says:

        The more the merrier.

  10. Omega says:

    Something’s either royally messed up or Trump is a twisted deviant lying vermin.

    He has called for talks with Iran on several occasions. Even Israel was worried about it.

    I am thinking – to find an explanation and not to justify – that the War Party ordered the strike and cornered Trump with it.

  11. cechas vodobenikov says:

    another example that explains why amerikans r despised across the globe

  12. jm74 says:

    Iran has designated the US as a state sponsor of terrorist, they need to add to that and designate them as terrorists then set up hit squads in the US and start knocking off some high ranking officials and even target some of trumps families.

  13. goingbrokes says:

    The US claim is so phoney that it looks like they are forced to take responsibility for an israeli strike.

  14. Jake321 says:

    It gets better all the time.
