Iran has not forgotten General Qasem Soleimani, who was killed by a US drone strike. Tehran has created a new ballistic missile and named it in his honor.
Iran’s armed forces have presented two new missiles – a surface-to-surface ballistic missile and a cruise missile.
The ballistic missile is called “The Martyr Hajj Qasem” in honor of General Qasem Soleimani, who was killed in a US drone strike on 3 January 2020 at Baghdad International Airport.
The cruise missile was named after Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, the leader of the Hashd al-Shaabi Shiite forces, who was killed together with Soleimani.
The drone strike was authorized by US President Donald Trump as Washington maintained that Soleimani and Al-Muhandis were both involved in the attack on the US embassy in Baghdad on 31 December 2019.
