Qasem Soleimani, was the Chief of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He was extremely famous and powerful. Soleimani of the Revolutionary Gaurds was even more powerful than the President of Iran. He was slated to be the next President of Iran. The USA have labelled the Revolutionary Gaurds a terrorist organisation because of their violent activities in the past. Recently on 31st December 2019, in Baghdad, Iraq, the US embassy was attacked by the revolutionary gaurds. When the US learnt of this they were shocked and said it was planned by Soleimani. President Donald Trump was extremely angry. USA Department of Defense said, they will do anything to protect lives of Americans living in foreign countries. Trump vowed to avenge these attacks. On 3rd January 2020 at the Baghdad airport in Iraq, 3 unmanned remote controlled missilles were dropped at the airport. Let me tell you what happened. Soleimani landed at Baghdad airport at 12.30 am along with his team. The Iraqi officials met him and dropped him to his car. While Soleimani and his team were in the car, 2-3 missiles were fired ont their car. The powerful explosion caused the bodies to be torn to shreds. Soleimani was identified by the red ring he always wore. 5 Iraqi security officials and some guests were killed. USA Department of Defense said that Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans. This is why they plotted to kill him. Iran & the USA have been bitter enemies. There have been arguments among them for a while now. Now that they killed Iran’s most powerful individual, the situation will become even more tense. Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has promised to take revenge on the USA for killing Soleimani He said that the US has conducted an act of terrorism by killing Soleimani. Since a powerful person like Solemani has died, a three-day mourning as per Islamic customs has been declared in Iran.
