U. S. Defense Secretary Espa on Tuesday night just warned Iran,\" if in the provocation to launch a pre-emptive strike.\" Then, in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Iraq's Shi'ite People's Mobilization Force (PMF) said five senior members and \"two guests\" had been killed by U.S. missiles near Baghdad International Airport.
Among the two'guests'were the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Al-Quds Brigade in Iran, Lieutenant-General Qasem Soleimani, Arab television and Sky reported on Wednesday. His vehicle was killed near Baghdad International Airport after being hit by a \"Hellfire\" missile fired by U.S. forces'MQ-9\" Death \"drones.
On the other hand, Reuters, citing unnamed U.S. officials, confirmed the U.S. military launched a surprise air strike against two Iranian-related targets in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, on Wednesday. The Russian satellite news agency sent an e-mail interview to the U.S. Department of Defense on the issue, but has not yet received a response.
Iraqi Shiite \"People's Mobilization Forces\" said its top official in charge of public relations, Mohammed Jabiri, was killed in the accident along with four other members, as well as \"two guests.\"
In a later report, sources said the Pentagon was waiting for DNA tests to confirm the death of Major General Sulaymani, commander of Iran's special forces Al-Quds Brigade.
People from the U.S. Department of Defense say they are awaiting results from DNA tests to confirm that the attack was killed by the commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Al-Quds Brigade, Suleimani, and a senior member of Iraq's Shi'ite People's Mobilization Force.
Newsweek magazine described the U.S. military as sending a \"Death\" attack drone into Baghdad. A senior Pentagon official said they were \"very likely\" to be close to confirming the deaths of Suleimani and Abu Mahdi Khandis, the vice chairman of Iraq's Shiite \"People's Mobilization Forces.\"
The \"Al-Quds Brigade\" of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran is a very mysterious force, and its role in the countries surrounding Iran is also very great, but at the same time invisible. Because, the trace of this unit is very secretive, and the local forces in the surrounding countries are often mixed, and Sulaymani's whereabouts are very mysterious.
As commander of the al-Quds Brigade, Suleimani is said to be directly responsible to Iran's top spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. This underscores the importance the Islamic Republic attaches to the Al-Quds Brigade.
The “Al-Quds Brigade was founded during the war between Iran and Iraq and is part of a special unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in terms of establishment. The main task of this force is to carry out special operations abroad. To put it bluntly, it is to help those Shi'ite fighters fight against the government or the US.
It is precisely because the Holy City Brigade plays a very mysterious and special role that it is regarded by some Western countries as a state-of-the-art and most well-funded \"terrorist organization\" supported by the state. Generally speaking, the members of the Al-Quds Brigade are faithful followers of Islam and voluntarily sacrifice everything for the country.
On 13 February 2012, when the Israeli embassies in India and Georgia were bombed almost simultaneously, Tel Aviv first accused Iran, the \"arch-rival \", of being behind the scenes.
Some media have even named Iran's Revolutionary Guard's famous overseas military organization, the Al-Quds Brigade, as the biggest suspect. In that incident, Iran's Al-Quds Brigade and its commander, Suleimani, became the focus of international opinion and attention.
In 2010 or so, according to israeli media, iran was hostile to the u. s.and regional nations for accelerating its nuclear capabilities. Some members of the al-Quds Brigade secretly infiltrated the pro-American Gulf Arab states, ready to attack their oil installations and even their domestic targets.
Senior officials from Suleimani and the Al-Quds Brigade have visited Damascus several times before to counter pressure from Western and Gulf nations on the nuclear issue and support Syria, a Shiite ally in turmoil. Saudi media said he also brought \"anti-terrorist equipment\" to syrian president bashar.
Qatar al-jazeera has also repeatedly accused the government of syrian bashar of inviting iran's \"holy city brigade\" advisers to help combat. Al-jazeera also quoted a syrian anti-government militant as saying that bashar had \"made syria the 32nd province of iran\" to maintain power.
On march 11,1957, surimani was born in the village of rapol in kerman province, where he attended a religious school as a child, forming a tolerant and determined character. During the reign of iran's king mr. barevi, mr. sulimani worked as a mason, worked as a textile worker and tasted bitterness, and was increasingly inclined to advocate religious transformation of society in khomeini.
After Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution victory, Suleimani, as an activist, entered the \"500-member regiment \"( the predecessor of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps), created by spiritual leader Khomeini, to take on the security of Khomeini. Under his command, he exterminated a number of insurgent activities, especially in the 1980\" nojay air base rebellion \".
On September 22,1980, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein took advantage of the instability in Iran to launch a war between Iraq and Iraq. Khomeini issued a \"jihadist\" call to the Iranian nation, and Suleimani joined the newly formed Revolutionary Guard as a lieutenant on the battlefield.
Suleimani did not lead his men on the battlefield with the enemy on the battlefield. or to fly an airplane, tank, and strike against enemy positions or important targets.
During the previous battles, Suleimani had a special mandate. He has often volunteered for the most dangerous missions – deep behind enemy lines, spying on intelligence, mapping out the deployment of Iraqi forces, and then handing them over to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to ensure defeat. So mr suleimani has done his best.
On the day of his 30th birthday, the supreme security council in tehran promoted sulimani to commander of the 41st brigade, the taharalach brigade.
In the 1990s, Suleimani served as commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in the southeastern city of Kerman, bordering on war-torn Afghanistan and the only way to drug trafficking from the poppy-growing region of the Golden Crescent to Turkey and Europe. Suleimani used an iron fist to combat drug trafficking and kept the country's doors open.
In 2000, Suleimani was appointed commander of the special forces of the Revolutionary Guard, the \"Al-Quds Brigade.\" According to the U.S. and Israeli media, he effectively strengthened special training for troops, especially by designing a variety of fake identities for expatriate agents to lurk and infiltrate.
After the U.S. toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003, Suleimani seized on Iraq's domestic power vacuum and sent a large number of Al-Quds operatives into southern Iraq to support the local Mahdi army's confrontation with the U.S. military, while also secretly providing arms to the Sunni resistance, according to the U.S. Global Security website.
Back in march 2007, the u. s. pushed the un to pass resolution 1747, sanctioning iran's military and military high-ranking official, suleiman nichland, was on the list, but he did not seem to care.
The u. s.has also been seen as a \"thorn in the flesh\" in mr. suleimani, who has organized numerous military operations in hopes of attacking iran's \"holy city brigade\" in syria and iraq, as well as the commander of the secretive army.
Several times before it emerged that Suleimani had been killed in a special bombing mission carried out by U.S. planes, but it was later confirmed as false news that Suleimani had always appeared on Iranian television soon after. And this time did Suleimani actually die in a targeted U. S.\" Clear \"operation?
It seems that there will soon be a real answer. One thing is clear, though, is that if Suleimani were to be killed, Iran would never give up. (Author's signature: Stone River Moon)
