In the name of of Allah the Merciful

Dear Iranian people!

Here the great banner of Islam and tallness has flown into the heavens.

Last night, the pure souls of the martyrs embraced the pure spirit of Qasim Suleimani.

Years of pure and courageous jihad in the arenas of fighting demons and villains of the world, and the years of those who wished to testify for the sake of God finally reached Suleimani the dear of this noble status, as his pure blood was shed by the hardest human beings on the face of the earth.

I offer the highest verses of blessing to the owner of the times and times, the greatest of God (our souls), and for his pure spirit and my condolences to the Iranian people.

He was a prominent example of the Nahil of Islam and the school of Imam Khomeini, as he spent most of his life striving for God.

Martyrdom has been the reward for his endeavors throughout all these years.

His work and approach will not stop with his departure with the might and power of God and will not reach a dead end, but severe revenge will await criminals whose hands dirty with blood and the blood of other martyrs of the incident last night.

The martyr Suleimani is an international resistance figure, and all his fans are calling for revenge for his blood.

Let all friends – and foes too – know that the path of jihad in resistance will continue with multiple motives, and that the decisive victory will be an ally of the Mujahideen of this blessed path.

The loss of our leader, the sacrifice, is dear and bitter, but the continuation of the struggle and the achievement of the final victory will be bitterer for the killers and criminals.

The Iranian people will honor the name and remembrance of the high-ranking martyr Major General Qasim Suleimani and the martyrs who were with him, especially the great Mujahid of Islam, Mr. Abu Mahdi Al Muhandis.
