Israel is on High Alert After US Eliminated IRGC Commander Soleimani - Reports

Qasem Soleimani
Commander of the elite Quds forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Qasem Soleimani was killed in US airstrikes on Friday morning.

The operation was carried out after Washington accused Tehran of orchestrating a violent attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad.

Israel has been put on high alert due to possible threats from Iran, and Mount Hermon has been closed to visitors. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) confirmed the decision on their official Twitter account.

  1. General Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' elite Quds Force, has been killed by US forces in Iraq.
    The Pentagon confirmed he was killed "at the direction of the president".
    Gen Soleimani was being driven by car at Baghdad airport with local Iran-backed militias when hit by an air strike.
    Iran's Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, called the move "extremely dangerous and a foolish escalation" and "an act of international terrorism".
    Gen Soleimani was a major figure in the Iranian regime. His Quds Force reported directly to the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and he was hailed as a heroic national figure.

  2. US media reports say Gen Soleimani and officials from Iran-backed militias were leaving Baghdad airport in two cars when they were hit by a US drone strike near a cargo area.
    The commander had reportedly flown in from Lebanon or Syria. Several missiles reportedly struck the convoy, and at least five people are thought to have died.

  3. The drone strike comes days after protesters attacked the US embassy in Baghdad, clashing with US forces at the scene. The Pentagon said Gen Soleimani approved the attacks on the embassy.

  5. The Pentagon said that US President Donald Trump ordered General Soleimani's "killing," after a pro-Iran mob this week laid siege to the US embassy.

  6. The Hashed confirmed that both Soleimani and its deputy chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were killed in what it said was a "US strike."

    It said: "The deputy head of the Hashed, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and head of the Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani, were killed in a US strike that targeted their car on the Baghdad International Airport road."

    The Hashed is a network of mostly-Shiite armed units, many of who have close ties to Tehran but which have been officially incorporated into Iraq's state security forces.

  18. Soleimani assassination by US ‘an adventurous move’ that will flare up tensions in Middle East – Moscow...

    The US airstrike that killed a senior Iranian commander near Baghdad will exacerbate tensions throughout the Middle East, the Russian foreign ministry has warned.
    Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s Quds Force, was killed in a US operation at Baghdad International Airport on Friday morning. Moscow considers the operation “an adventurous move that will lead to an escalation of tension throughout the region,” the ministry said.

    “Soleimani served devotedly the cause of defending the national interests of Iran. We express our sincere condolences to the Iranian people,” the short statement said.

  42. Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a US airstrike, had played a vital role in fighting terrorists in Syria and Iraq, the Russian Defense Ministry said, adding that his death would harm international security.

    The ministry slammed the assassination of the Iranian general, carried out on orders from Washington, calling it a “short-sighted” move that would lead to a “rapid escalation” of tensions in the Middle East. It also described Soleimani as a talented and experienced commander, who enjoyed “well-earned authority” throughout the Middle East.

    It was under Soleimani’s direct command that military resistance to the international terrorist groups Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Al Qaeda was organized in Syria and Iraq, long before the so-called US-led ‘international coalition’ was formed.

  70. On Saturday, the Iraqi capital witnessed several rocket attacks, including in the residential area of Al-Jadriya and the Balad military base that houses US forces, some 50 miles north of Baghdad.
    According to a statement issued by the Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR) on 4 January, during attacks near Iraqi bases that host coalition troops, "the International Zone took indirect fire that landed outside of Coalition facilities and potentially harmed Iraqi civilians".

    The coalition statement notes that previous attacks that took place in November and December "killed and wounded Iraqi and Coalition personnel".

    The release adds that earlier reports on attacks against the Ninewah Operation Centre in Mosul were false, calling on people to "request confirmation through government officials, instead of spreading rumors".

  97. If the US and its allies launch any more attacks on Iran, they will incur “more painful and crushing responses,” the Islamic Revolutionary Guards of Iran warned, noting that ‘Zionist regime’ of Israel will not be spared.
    The IRGC issued a statement in the early hours of Wednesday local time, after launching a volley of missiles against two bases used by US forces inside Iraq, in retaliation for last week’s drone assassination of IRGC Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani outside Baghdad.

    We warn the Great Satan, the bloodthirsty and arrogant regime of the US, that any new wicked act or more moves and aggressions [against Iran] will bring about more painful and crushing responses.

    The statement, according to Tasnim news agency, also said that Tehran sees no difference between the “Zionist regime” – meaning Israel – and the US when it comes to the “crime” of assassinating Soleimani. This was presumably in reaction to reports that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu was trying to disassociate from the strike, calling it a purely American affair.

  113. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned of any US response to Tehran's reprisal for the assassination of IRGC Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, and said US pullout from the region is the main revenge to be taken from Washington.

    "The Islamic Republic had to show a military reaction to the US government's measure and it did but this is not the end game. The end will be the withdrawal of the US which does not need military action and it is the result of the Americans' move and the result of support they showed in this arrogant and stupid move," Zarif told reporters in Tehran on Wednesday after a cabinet meeting.

    "The Islamic Republic of Iran has declared that if the US makes a mistake, it will definitely be given a response," he added.

    "The Islamic Republic of Iran's military action was carried out, but as the Supreme Leader has said it was a slap in the face of the Americans, and the revenge will be the US pullout from the region," Zarif said, praising the IRGC's retaliatory missile attacks against the US bases.

    He underlined that while public hatred for the US is on rise, "it is spending its last days in our region", adding that Washington has relied on wrong and dangerous consultations.

  117. Tasnim News Agency has learned that Iran used sophisticated missiles with fragmentation warheads in an attack on the US airbase of Ain al-Assad in Iraq early Wednesday...

    According to information obtained by Tasnim, the US missile defense systems in Iraq have failed to intercept any missile that the IRGC Aerospace Force rained down on Ain al-Assad airbase in Anbar province in western Iraq early Wednesday.

    In the Iranian attack, launched in retaliation for the US assassination of top Iranian anti-terror commander Lt. General Qassem Soleimani, the IRGC Aerospace Force utilized the Fateh-313 and the Qiam missiles, with a range of 500 km and 800 km, respectively.

    The Fateh-313 missiles have such a high velocity that the American defense systems have been unable to intercept any of the projectiles.

    Moreover, the Qiam missiles fired in the overnight strike have been equipped with radar jamming systems and fragmentation warheads.

    This was the first time that Iran has used such advanced missiles in a combat operation.

    In June 2017, the IRGC had utilized Qiam for hitting the ISIS targets in Syria, but the missiles launched in that operation had regular warheads as the targets had been packed in a small area.

    The fragmentation warhead in each of the Qiam missiles fired in the Wednesday strike have reportedly caused tens of explosions at the American airbase.
