“Soleimani is considered the architect behind Iran’s elite Quds Force—an elite unit within Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) that is tasked with Iran’s extra-territorial military operations—including activities to expand Iranian influence in Syria and rocket attacks on Israel.”

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared Soliemani a martyr and threatened revenge on the US and Israel, though Israel did not participate in the airstrike. Khamenei declared that there would be three days of mourning for the martyr.
