As a result of a missile targeted by America to Baghdad international airport towards early morning hours last January 3rd, Friday ... air force commander of Iran and major general Qaseem Solaimani who functioned as the commanding officer of the revolutionary guard corp embraced death. Solaimani being murdered was a premeditated revenge carried out by America.
