Soleimani's Daughter Says Millions Like Him Ready To March On The White House

Zeinab Soleimani, the daughter of Iran's IRGS Majer-General Qassem Soleimani delivering her speech in his funeral in Tehran, Iran, January 6, 2020.

The daughter of Qassem Soleimani, the IRGC Commander who was killed during a U.S. drone attack in Baghdad on January 3, says "Thousands and thousands of Soleimanis are ready to march on the White House."

She made the statement in an address before the start of Friday Prayers in Kerman, her father's hometown on January 10.

Soleimani was the commander of Iran’s extraterritorial Qods force, in charge of establishing militant networks throughout the Middle East and beyond. The United States had designated him as a terrorist.

Zaynab Soleimani described the killing of her father as "a foolish act by America" and said that the event has united Muslims around the world.

"They broke the fragrance bottle, but the scent is everywhere," Zaynab Soleimani dramatized the impact of her dad's death.

Earlier, in speech during a commemoration ceremony in Tehran where Supreme Leader Khamenei was also present, Zaynab called on Lebanese Hezballah leader Hassan Nasrallah, Yemeni Houthi rebel leader Abdalmalek Houthi and Syrian President Bashar Assad to take revenge for her the fatal attack on her father, calling them her "uncles."

Meanwhile, she vowed not to stop the fight against the "great Satan" until the last day of her life.

"Haj Qassem's spirit has been instilled in everyone's body and thousands and thousands of Soleimani's are ready to march on to the White House," Soleimani's youngest daughter said.
