VFI Reports On Soleimani Assassination

“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you and I will save your children.” Isa. 49:25

The USA military in an early morning strike on Friday 3 Jan. 2020 took defensive action to protect USA personnel abroad by killing Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Quds Force. Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, along with 10 other people, were also killed in the attack. The Iranian Quids Force is a USA-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization and was said to have been actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region. Soleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more.  According to the State Department, 17% of all deaths of USA personnel in Iraq from 2003 to 2011 - 608 American troops - were planned by Gen. Soleimani. He had also coordinated attacks on coalition bases in Iraq over the last several months and approved the assault on the USA Embassy in Baghdad that took place last week. Washington defense officials announced last weekend that the military was sending approximately 3,000 soldiers to the Middle East after thousands of people stormed the compound of the USA Embassy in Baghdad on Tues. 31 Dec. 2019. The USA embassy in Baghdad directed American citizens to leave Iraq immediately. (VFI News)
