Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said that the murder of General Qasem Soleimani will be avenged.
The United States fired a rocket at the airport of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, killing General Qasem Soleimani, the commander of Quds Force of Iran.
On the death of Qasem Soleimani, Ayatollah Khamenei announced a three-day mourning in Iran and said that the killing of General Qasem Soleimani would be avenged.
Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Jawad Zarif said on social media in response to the US strike that the United States did the act of global terrorism by attacking General Suleimani.
Jawad Zarif added on his Twitter account that the US took a very dangerous and rogue move by attacking General Suleimani.
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.

He said General Sulaimani’s force was the most effective force in the fight against ISIS, al-Qaeda and Al Nusrah.
The Iranian Foreign Minister said that the United States would bear responsibility for the consequences of its rogue adventurism.
It should be noted that tensions between Iran and the US have increased over the past few days.
A few days ago, the United States airstrikes in Iraq killed 15 Hezbollah fighters.
In response to the attack, hundreds of protesters raided the US Embassy in Baghdad and set fire embassy.
The US blamed Iran for the attack on the embassy, and President Donald Trump said in a statement that Iran would pay a heavy price for the attack on the US embassy.
