Tehran (IP) - Tehran's Friday Prayer Leader says the front formed by Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani will eradicate the US and its mercenaries from the region forever.

Iran Press/Iran news: Ayatollah Kazem Seddiqi said in his Friday Prayer sermon that Lt. Gen. Soleimani mobilized and gathered the 'Shrine Defenders' in Yemen, Lebanon, Pakistan, Iraq and Iran as well as the world's freemen and opened a new way for the Resistance Axis.

Seddiqi said that despite the imagination of former US President Donald Trump and his confederates in the assassination of Lt. Gen. Soleimani, the Americans would not have a peaceful day in the region anymore.

After the martyrdom of General Soleimani, the US troops left the region scandalously, added the top cleric. 

He recalled: "The military empowered, politically, socially and morally; it internationally defeated enemy for whom no reputation was remained, experienced the tough blow and could do nothing."

Lt. Gen. Soleimani, the Commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), and Deputy Head of  Iraq's Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were assassinated along with their companions in a US drone strike authorized by former President Donald Trump near Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020.

They were highly popular because of their key role in eliminating the US-backed ISIS terrorist group in the region, particularly in Iraq and Syria.

Lt. Gen. Soleimani was assassinated by the US while he was in Baghdad at the official invitation of the Iraqi government.

Following the terrorist act of the White House, Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) hit the US military base Ain al-Assad in Iraq on January 8, 2020, with several missiles. 

Pentagon then gradually announced that the strike inflicted brain injuries on 110 American troops present at the base.
