General Kasem Soleimani, chief technician for Iran's regional power development. He is the most powerful commander of Iran's revolutionary forces. He has an important role in the fight against terrorism in Syria and Iraq. Last October, Iran also demanded that the assassination attempt be made void.


Iran's top general, Kasem Soleimani, was killed Friday morning under the direction of US President Donald Trump. The rocket attack was initially initially reported by the United States, but on Friday morning, Suleimani was attacked by a drone at Baghdad International Airport.


Three missiles were struck in two vehicles near the cargo terminal of the Baghdad airport. One of the vehicles was General Soleimani and militia leader Al-Muhandis. And for their safety, members of the Iraqi Paramilitary Force were in the second car. Analysts believe the incident will give new levels of tension around the Middle East, two days after a US attack on a Iranian-backed militia base killed 20 people in the US embassy in Baghdad.


The Pentagon, the US Defense Headquarters, said in a statement that General Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of the IRGC in Iran, was killed in an attack. The Pentagon statement said that under President Trump's orders, US forces killed Qasim Soleimani as a "protective measure" to protect their members abroad. The attack was intended to sabotage Iran's future attack plans. Wherever our citizens and resources are in the world, the United States will take all measures necessary to protect it.


Meanwhile, President Donald Trump tweeted a photo of the United States flag shortly after news of General Soleimani's death came to international media. US President Donald Trump has warned Iran not to go to conflict with the United States in the wake of the killing of Quds Force commander Kashem Solaimani. In a tweet, he wrote, "Iran has not won a war so far. They didn't even lose any opportunity to negotiate.


However, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said that after the murder of Soleimani, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, "Soleimani has carried out a sincere and heroic jihad for many years against the evil and devilish nations of the world. For those criminals who shed blood of General Soleimani with their dirty hands last night, awful revenge awaits them.


General Qasim Soleimani was an important figure in the Iranian Armed Forces, and he was given the honor of being a national hero. His Kudos Force operates mainly as a 'foreign wing' of the Revolutionary Guards Force. The force responded directly to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Soleimani is an important military strategist. He has also played an important role in determining power in Iraq and Syria. He has taken the lead in consolidating Iran's presence in the Middle East.


The Pentagon has been claiming that General Soleimani had approved plans to attack the US embassy in Baghdad, though Iran denied any involvement with the attack.


Protesters attacked the US embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday in protest of US airstrikes at Iranian-backed militia bases in Iraq and Syria. They set fire to the building's reception room and chanted outside the embassy. After being blocked by embassy staff for two days, they moved on Wednesday at the behest of Shiite militia leaders. US President Donald Trump has blamed Iran for the attack on the embassy, ​​saying they have to pay a high price. Iran's highest religious leader Ayatollah Ali Khameneo warned of the US reversing the allegations.



Oil prices rose four percent



Oil prices have risen more than four percent in the world market since the death of General Qasim Soleimani in Baghdad. Oil prices have risen sharply within hours after the US attack threatened to disrupt the Middle East oil supply for five hours. As a result, the price of oil has now risen to $ 5. This is the highest oil price since a missile attack on Saudi Arabia's government oil installations last September.


US 'West Texas Intermediate' (WTI) crude oil price hiked one dollar to 5 cents, or two percent to 5 percent. The price of oil reached $ 12 cents.
