Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza has paid tribute to the commander of the Quds Brigades of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards who was killed by the United States.
“Venezuela salutes Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenie and the Iranian people and pays tribute to the unforgettable commander of the Quds Brigades General Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated a year ago in a terrorist action on the orders of U.S. President Donald Trump,” Arreaza wrote in a tweet on Sunday marking the anniversary of General Soleimani’s martyrdom.
Yesterday, former Bolivian President Evo Morales also remembered General Soleimani, writing on Twitter that Bolivia stands with the Iranian people in honoring and paying tribute to this commander.
“The fight against imperialism has heroes and martyrs worldwide. One of them is Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated in 2020,” his tweet read.
Morales added: “People recognize the heroic struggle for justice and defense of the sovereignty of nations suffering from foreign aggression.”
General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Brigade of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (Sepah) and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (al-Hashd al-Shaabi) and their 8 companions were martyred in an airstrike by terrorist U.S. military forces near Baghdad airport on January 3, 2020.
