    Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Commander Soleimani was assassinated after the United States claimed that Tehran was behind the attack on the American Embassy in Baghdad on 31 December.

    A video allegedly depicting the assassination site of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani has been published on Twitter.

    The footage shows the burned-out remains of a car after a US airstrike that killed the elite Quds Force commander and several officers from the Iraqi Shia Popular Mobilisation Forces near the Baghdad International Airport.

    ​Tehran has addressed the US operation, warning that resistance against Washington in the region will only increase after the killing of Soleimani.
