IRGC Quds Force chief replies to U.S. assassination plot calls
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 24 / Trend S.Isayev, T.Jafarov/
IRGC Quds Force chief Major General Qassem Suleimani addressed a message to the U.S., saying he's not afraid of so-called death threats, Fars News Agency reported.
"This death threat is nothing to me and does not bother me either. They think to scare us by such threats. But my reply to these people is 'I am not afraid to die, if it's God's will'," said Suleimani.
Tensions regarding the death threat issue have increased after several American neoconservatives including retired U.S. Army general Jack Keane and former CIA agent Reuel Marc Gerecht, urged the Obama administration to use covert action against Iran and target some of its top officials, one of which is Major General Qassem Suleimani, an IRGC Quds Force chief.
