Tehran (IP) - The Minister of Defense of Iran Brigadier General Amir Hatami expressed that the enemy's goal in assassinating Lt. Gen. Qasem Soleimani was to prevent further humiliation of the United States in the region.

Iran Press/Iran News: Iran's defense minister stated in a video conference on Tuesday that the memory of the martyred commander Qasem Soleimani will always be alive on in the hearts of the world's freedom-seekers.

"The right to prosecute the murderers of Martyr Soleimani remains strong and this fear will always remain with the criminals," he added.

Stating that the holy defense of the Iranian nation, unlike other battles of Iran in the past, brought glory, honor, and pride for the country, Hatami noted: "The current situation of Iran in various scientific, political, and especially defense fields is such that despite the cruel threats of the hegemonic system, Iran can detect and thwart any threat at the starting point, even outside its borders."

Pointing out that the objective example of Iran's sovereignty has been revealed to everyone at different junctures, Hatami stated: "When the enemy occupied a large land by creating terrorist groups, Iran was able to overcome the enemies and eradicated terrorism with the help of the armed forces and the people of Syria and Iraq, with its own design and the inspiration of the Holy Defense."

Iran's defense minister expressed that the resistance will continue until the enemy is expelled from West Asia and the region is cleansed of the filth of the existence of the Great Satan (the US).
