If they are not prosecuted for that crime, Muslims will avenge Soleimani, he predicted.
Raeisi made the remarks during a ceremony in the capital to commemorate the martyrdom of the former head of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps on a day like today two years ago.
General Soleimani, he said, left a legacy of thoughts that continued the school of the late Imam Ruollah Khomeini and Iran’s current Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
“That school will not be extinguished by assassinations and missiles, he added, because it is and will be present in the Resistance against the enemy, with which the general conquered hearts better than lands.”
The US violated the sovereignty of Iraq with the deadly attack against Soleimani and his companions and their intellectual and material authors must be brought to justice, he stressed.
At the time of his death, caused by an American air operation, the Iranian general was complying with an invitation from Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi.
