General Soleimani: A man behind defeat of United States Military in Middle East
TEHRAN – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the Lieutenant General Soleimani assassination by the US forces in Iraq in fact initiated a chain of defeats and failures for the US, Zionist regime of Israel and their regional allies in the battlefields.
Gen Soleimani was is an enduring myth and unforgettable and unrepeated commander, Major General Hossein Salami said in a meeting held in Tehran on Tuesday with the visiting Syrian Prime Minister Imad Khamis.
In the meeting, the Syrian premier expressed condolences to General Salami over the Jan 3 martyrdom of Lt Soleimani.
As Salami stressed, Gen Soleimani will never be faded away from the Muslim nations' memory.
Although he was born in Iran, he belonged to the World of Islam as he had a special status in Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, Salami said while talking about Gen Soleimani.
Gen Soleimani strengthened the power of the Resistance front, Salami noted.
About Tehran's stance on Syria, Salami said Iran respects Syria's territorial integrity, stands by the Syrians and stays in the field to make the enemies leave Syria.
The Syrian premier, too, appreciated Gen Soleimani's services in line with the settlement of security in the region.
Further, Khamis said he has brought the top medal of honor of the Syrian armed forces to Tehran to present it to the family of Gen Soleimani.
All in Syria mourns for Gen Soleimani because he was recognized by countries of the Resistance front as a unique champion, Khamis said.
