One of the most powerful figures in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was assassinated in a drone strike in Baghdad in January 2020.

“Our enemies have repeatedly asked us to abandon the revenge of Qasem Soleimani’s blood in exchange for easing some restrictions,” Iranian Vice Admiral Alireza Tangsiri told Sepah News, adding that the request would never be accepted.

An “imminent” attack on US troops in Baghdad, according to the former president of the USA Donald Trump led him to order the assassination of Qasem Soleimani.

Iran responded to its assassination by firing rockets at Iraqi bases housing US forces, wounding several soldiers at a time when the risk of another major war in the Middle East was imminent.
