The United States thought that by assassinating General Qassem Soleimani, it could end the growing influence of the Islamic Republic in the region and, according to White House residents, break Iran’s back. But the passage of time and the latest achievements of the axis of resistance show that while the general is no longer among them, followers of his ideology keep his path.
After the assassination of Hajj Qasem and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandis, it is thought that the resistance groups in Iraq are no longer have strength. Therefore, Adnan al-Zurfi, the former governor of Najaf, sought the capture the prime minister’s seat with the full support of the Americans. But at the same time when al-Zurfi was struggling to capture prime minister’s seat, General Qaani visits Iraq to consult with resistance groups and Iraqi officials. During the visit, while emphasizing that Tehran has not interfered in the nomination or appointment of the next Prime Minister of the country, and that it is the Iraqis themselves who must determine their own destiny and future, recommendations were made to the friends of the Islamic Republic in Iraq, whoever you choose, consider two criteria: first, not to be hostile to the Popular Mobilization Forces, and second, not to be affiliated with the United States!
It was after this trip that Iraqi groups opposed the American option, al-Zurfi, and reached a consensus on Mustafa al-Kazemi. The visit of the new commander of the Quds Force to Iraq sent a clear message to the American occupier that Tehran would not abandon its friends in Iraq, but also that Iran’s friends would not leave their neighboring country and friend.
In the last days of 2019, the media reported on the visit of General Qaani, commander of the Quds Force, to Syria. During the trip, he visited some areas on the southern outskirts of Aleppo province, which control was taken over by the Syrian army. The trip sent important messages to regional and international parties. Because it was the first trip since the martyrdom of General Soleimani. The trip marked Iran’s continued support for the legitimate Syrian government and the axis of resistance and Iran’s insistence on participating in the fight against terrorism.
On the other hand, in the battlefield developments, the Syrian army and the Axis of Resistance, with the help of the bravery of General Qasem Soleimani and his comrades, have been able to liberate many positions from the outskirts of Aleppo and Idlib in recent months. Khan Tuman was one of those areas that predicted a great victory of the resistance axis in Syria.
In this regard, Yahya al-Aridi, a spokesman for the Syrian opposition, said in a statement that after the assassination of General Soleimani, we thought Iran would be more desperate and will not be able to take calculated action in Syria, but contrary to our belief, Iran is still active in Syria and emphasizes that it has something to say.
Iran’s first military satellite
Noor satellite, as the first military satellite of the Islamic Republic of Iran, successfully launched by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on Wednesday, April 22, with a three-stage satellite carrier Qased-3 from Iran’s central desert.
Launching the satellite and placing it in the Earth’s 425-kilometer orbit, the longest orbit that country has been able to reach, could be the basis for other successful Iranian launches in the field of civilian satellites. on the other hand, it shows the successful transition of the country from the previous two generations of the satellite carriers Safir and Simorgh. Another point in this regard goes back to the military nature of satellites. Given that satellite carriers are basically a “ballistic missile” by military definition, it can be said that the IRGC has acquired the knowledge of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM).
The IRGC’s strategic actions and recent regional achievements have even been acknowledged even by Western officials; US Senator Chris Murphy has said that since the assassination of General Soleimani, attacks on US forces have increased and the successful launch of the Iranian satellite indicates that Donald Trump’s policy against Iran has made Iran stronger.
