Qassim Soleimani, leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force, was planning a campaign to kill more Americans in Iraq.

“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.
