General Soleimani’s Daughter Blasts Pompeo's Claims, Says Liars Should Live in Fear

TEHRAN (FNA)- Daughter of Iran's martyred anti-terror Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani in a Twitter message strongly blasted the recent remarks by former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and said that the liars should live in fear.

"Pompeo whines about Iran on Saudi TV. Home of 9/11 plotters. Jake Sullivan said Al-Qaeda "is on our side in Syria, but Soleimani crushed the terrorists. Iraq's Adil Abdul Mahdi said he & dad were to meet that morning to explore regional de-escalation. Live in fear liar," Zeinab Soleimani tweeted.

Zeinab Soleimani's remarks came after Pompeo claimed in an interview with Al Arabiya published Friday that Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani was killed to stop a plot against 500 Americans.

"General Soleimani was engaged in a plot to kill another 500 Americans. We had the opportunity to take down that plot, and we did," Pompeo said.

In relevant remarks in early January, Zeinab Soleimani vowed that revenge on the blood of anti-terror commanders will be taken in the near future.

Zeinab Soleimani was addressing a large gathering of Iraqis who had gathered near Baghdad International Airport, where Lieutenant General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were assassinated, to commemorate the second martyrdom anniversary of anti-terror commanders on January 3, 2022

The US terrorist forces assassinated General Soleimani, who was among the key figures in the fight against terrorism in Syria and Iraq in the past several years, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s pro-government Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) in an airstrike ordered by former US President Donald Trump at Baghdad's international airport on January 3, 2020.
