General Qassem Soleimani says Iranian forces will not rest until they have taken out every last terrorist from the face of the Muslim world after Daesh reportedly beheaded an Iranian military adviser in Syria .
The general, who commands the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), made the pledge in a statement carried by Tasnim News Agency on Thursday.
Mohsen Hojaji, who was a member of the Iranian advisory support team in Syria , was reportedly taken hostage by the Takfiri group near the Iraqi border on Monday and beheaded two days later.
General Soleimani said the “horrific, inhumane crime” came in the wake of successive blows dealt on several fronts to Takfiri-Wahhabi terror groups, which are tied to global arrogance.
“The atrocity does not fall within any Islamic, or even humanitarian, principle or law,” the statement said.
Such acts, the general said, would further strengthen the Iranian servicemen’s resolve in pursuit of their cause “to purge every inch of the Muslim territories of their (the terrorists’) evil presence.”
