The two great events of General Qassem Soleimani's funeral and the day when Iran attacked the US bases were 'Days of Allah. "The two episodes, miracles of Allah's hands, showed the power of a nation that slapped the US in the face and that Allah's will is to continue on the path and win the victory." The Iranian Supreme Guide Ali Khamenei said this in his first sermon after 8 years of Islamic prayer in Tehran.

Soleimani "fought in the front lines against ISIS terrorists. He was the most important commander in the fighting against ISIS in Syria and Iraq but the Americans did not have the courage to face him on the battlefield and killed him while he was in seen in Baghdad at the invitation of the Iraqi government, "remarked Khamenei.
