The paper in its editorial comments on Thursday strongly condemned the complicity of the United States and the leaders of the Zionist regime in the terrorist operation against the senior Iranian general in the territory of a third country.
The editorial states the recent confession of the Zionists in the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani is an indictment of illegal state of Israel and Iran will be well within its rights to seek retribution.
It said the Zionist state believes in extra-territorial assassinations and aggression as a part of its state policy. To further compound the crime graph is the explicit involvement of the US with the Zionist entity, which underlines the commonality of their interests in utter disregard to the established norms of diplomacy and warfare.
The editorial said one wonders who will stand up to castigate Tel Aviv for its manslaughter policies from Baghdad to Gaza, and from Lebanon to the cold-blooded murder in January 2010 of Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh. Last but not least, Operation Opera, which destroyed an Iraqi nuclear reactor near Baghdad in June 1981, is another transgression in point.
“Israel’s going scot-free is contempt of International law,” it said.
The Express Tribune said assassination of Genera Qasem Soleimani by the United States led the whole Middle East to a full-scale conflict, and Iran also publicly pledged to avenge the blood of its commander.
IRGC Quds force commander Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani and the Deputy Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), known as Hash al-Shaabi, Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes were martyred by the US in targeted airstrike against their motorcade in Baghdad airport on 3rd January 2020.
As a result of this White House terrorist act, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps fired several ballistic missiles at the US base of Ain al-Assad in Iraq’s Al-Anbar province which caused huge losses to the American forces.
