Political circles in Iran unanimously agreed that "expelling" American forces from the region and neutralizing what threatens Iranian national security constitutes the greatest gain that Tehran aspires to achieve against the background of the assassination of the Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, as well as strengthening the internal support that has declined recently after raising fuel prices.
And on the chord of escalating threats in Iran to avenge Suleimani, who was killed a few days ago in an American strike at Baghdad Airport, and the failure of all regional and international mediation to reduce the escalation, questions were frequently asked about the gains that Tehran wants to achieve both internally and externally.
Perhaps the most important gains that Tehran wants to achieve from the assassination of its military leader is "strengthening the resistance front and developing feelings of hatred and hatred for US policies," according to the comment of a prominent Iranian lawmaker, Heshmatullah Bishah, who spoke about the implications of the American attack on the Soleimani convoy.

It started to bear fruit (Iranian press)
The former Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian Parliament, in his interview with Al-Jazeera Net, stressed that Soleimani's blood began to bear fruit by increasing Iranian power factors outside the borders, while it was negatively reflected on the American side.
He added that what we see as a daily targeting of American bases, even in African countries such as Kenya, is evidence of weakness and weakness of the United States, he said.
Targeting the American presence
Referring to the large crowds that spread the body of Soleimani in Iraq and a number of Iranian provinces, he said that "transferring the culture of martyrdom and sacrifice to the younger generation" is a great advantage for Iran, as well as "the development of a culture of resistance and the fight against arrogance and demanding the liberation of Jerusalem among other Islamic peoples."
According to a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian parliament, the assassination of Soleimani put big questions in front of the American presence in the region, stressing that the Iraqi parliament’s ratification of the law of the exit of foreign forces, led by American forces, proves the illegitimacy of this military presence, which Tehran was advocating A long time ago.
Falahat Bisha stressed that he is away from the American threats to impose sanctions on Iraq in response to his demand for the exit of its forces during the coming period, because keeping the US forces illegally will cost them a lot and will be forced to comply with the will of the Iraqi people sooner or later, he said.
He added that if Trump was tampering with Iraq and Syria under the pretext of combating what was known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, then the assassination of Soleimani as a defendant of terrorist groups in the region revealed this American lie to international public opinion, which was what the Islamic Republic aspired to.
The prominent Iranian deputy concluded that strengthening the solidarity of the Iraqi and Iranian peoples and thwarting all the plans that wanted to strike the bonds of friendship between the two peoples is a great gain achieved with the blessing of Soleimani's blood, as well as the unification of the Iranian home front after less than two months of popular protests that followed the raising of fuel prices.
For his part, the director of the Institute of International Relations, Majeed Zouari, believes that "the formation of a strong anti-American front in the region" started to take shape from Iran and Iraq, explaining that "the American presence in Iraq has become an occupation that will have severe consequences for the American side, especially, after the calls that were launched. From Iraq to form an international resistance front. "
In his speech to Al-Jazeera Net, he stressed that raising the costs of the American presence in the region comes in the context of the Iranian trend during the past years, because it will force the American forces to leave the area surrounding Iran and neutralize what was threatening its security.
He added that US President Donald Trump, who has worked hard over the past three years to create a unipolar world and revive American hegemony again, considering that he had turned his country's forces into legitimate targets across the Middle East and North Africa region by issuing orders to target the Soleimani procession.
Address soft war
Regarding the Iranian nuclear file, the director of the Institute of International Relations said that the American error in the accounts prompted Tehran recently to exit from the nuclear agreement and resume all of its nuclear activities, which means that it got rid of all restrictions that codified its program according to the 2015 nuclear agreement.
And the revitalization of new resistance movements in other regions would be another benefit that Iran might reap after the assassination of Soleimani, in addition to presenting the true Islamic republic image that was wronged by America in four decades.
Zouari concluded by saying that showing the reality of Iranian policies to world public opinion will lead to an increase in its popularity in the world, in exchange for the decline in the popularity of the United States in the Islamic world, whose people have come to view Washington as the primary enemy of their issues after the assassination of Soleimani.
