The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said that revenge for Iranian General Kassem Suleimani will be carried out only against those involved in his murder.
Earlier, the media reported that the U.S. accused the Iranian authorities that they are considering the possibility of eliminating the U.S. ambassador to the Republic of South Africa (South Africa) Lana Marx, allegedly in response to the murder of Iranian General Kassem Suleimani. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh denied these reports but stressed that Tehran will not forget and will not forgive Washington the “cowardly murder” of Suleimani.
“Mr. Trump, the revenge for our great general is real and serious. Do you think that for the blood of our brother and martyr, we will strike a woman, an ambassador in South Africa? We will hit those who directly or indirectly participated in the death of this great man,” said Hosein Salami, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC, part of Iran’s armed forces).
Relations between Tehran and Washington deteriorated early in the year when the U.S. embassy was attacked several times by missiles.
The series of attacks began after U.S. troops killed General Kassem Suleimani of the elite Iranian Al-Quds special unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on the night of January 3. On the night of January 8, Iran launched a rocket attack on the American military infrastructure in Iraq. At that, the number of victims of that attack was not disclosed but periodically increased, as American mass media reported.
