And for all of humanity too. “
The Iranian diplomat stated that “one of Soleimani’s great services for the benefit of all peoples, including Europeans, was his work to liberate the world from ISIS and put an end to his field hegemony in Iraq and Syria.”
According to Bayat, “only the United States and the Israeli regime and terrorists, including ISIS, rejoiced in the assassination of the martyr Soleimani,” because “the fight against terrorism that he led led to the annihilation of the entity that the United States and Israel created in the region, which angered them.”
