Shameful and Cowardly Assassination of General Soleimani

Major General Qassem Soleimani, head of the expeditionary Quds Force branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), was cowardly assassinated by US task forces in Iraq. 

This very misfit and criminal measure by the US assassination squad made the Iranian nation so sad and simultaneously shocked. They became sad because they liked him so much and appreciated him as a national hero who had fought for the country during the Iran – Iraq war and also against ISIS troops in Iraq. They were shocked because they didn't believe so much viciousness and criminality from the US president, Donald Trump who confessed has personally ordered the assassination himself. 
The Iranian people had previously heard of such cowardly assassination and atrocities from Israel and did not expect such a shameful act from the US, for that only Israelis in the world would have known of. 
Despite of all nonsenses the US president and FM Pompeo had said about Mjor Soleimani,  For Iranian and other people of the region he was a hero martyr and a commander of fight against terrorism and extremism and now his blood will undoubtedly further strengthen the tree of resistance in the region and the world. 
“Undoubtedly, such villainous and cowardly measure is another sign of the US’ frustration and incapability in the region and signifies the regional nations’ aversion to this aggressive regime,” In a statement of Friday morning, President Rouhani said.
Condemning the barbaric crime by the United States, President Rouhani paid tribute to General Soleimani for his efforts to protect Iran’s territorial integrity and to fight against terrorism and extremism in the region.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has also strongly condemned the US forces’ terrorist and criminal move to assassinate IRGC Quds Force Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani, vowing to hold the US accountable for the heinous crime.
Zarif earlier tweeted that “the US' act of international terrorism, targeting & assassinating General Soleimani— THE most effective force fighting Daesh (ISIS), Al Nusrah, Al Qaeda et al—is extremely dangerous & a foolish escalation.” “The US bears responsibility for all consequences of its rogue adventurism,” Zarif warned.
What is now predictable is targeting Iran’s head of Quds Force in Iraq and his following, including the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis will surely have regional and trans regional consequences beyond what one could recognize. Not only Iran, but all resistance groups all around the region now will try to take revenge, which would lead the U.S. further retaliate and this vicious cycle will continue for a while.
