US gives Zionist regime go-ahead to kill powerful Iranian general 'Qassem Soleimani'

The source was quoted by the paper as saying that Soleimani’s assassination would serve both countries’ interests and that US authorities have given Israel the go-ahead to carry it out.

WASHINGTON (AhlulBayt News Agency) - The US intelligence agencies have given Israeli regime the green light to assassinate the senior Iranian general, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida.

For the past 20 years or so, Qassem Soleimani has commanded the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Soleimani is a key figure in efforts to help Syrian President Bashar Assad and to enable him to retake cities and towns from US, Israel, Saudi-backed terrorist groups during his country’s ongoing war. He is also close relation with Lebanese group Hezbollah and the Palestinian Hamas in Gaza — both of which are committed to the destruction of Zionist regime.

Thursday’s report by al-Jarida, which has been known to publish improbable-sounding stories about Israel, was widely picked up by Israeli media.

There was no immediate reaction to the report from al-Quds (Jerusalem) or Washington.

Three years ago, Israeli regime came close to assassinating general Soleimani near Damascus, al-Jarida claimed unnamed source as saying, but the Americans tipped off the Iranians against the background of intense disagreement between Washington and Jerusalem.

Today, the Trump and Netanyahu administrations see eye to eye on Iran. Just four days ago, the two countries signed a joint memorandum of understanding laying the groundwork for full cooperation to deal with Iran’s nuclear drive, its missile programs, an Israeli TV claimed recently.

The source was quoted by the paper as saying that Soleimani’s assassination would serve both countries’ interests and that US authorities have given Israel the go-ahead to carry it out.

Earlier CIA Director Mike Pompeo says he has written a letter to Iran’s Major General Qassem Soleimani to warn him about US interests in Iraq.

The anti-Iran figure, who may soon replace US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, made the announcement on Saturday, asserting that the general refused to read it, The Washington Post reported.

“I sent a note. I sent it because he had indicated that forces under his control might in fact threaten US interests in Iraq,” Pompeo claimed at a defense forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in Simi Valley, California. “He refused to open the letter — didn’t break my heart to be honest with you.”
