General Qa’ani

The Quds Force strategy will be the same as during the Martyr General Soleimani

Following the martyrdom of the honorable Commander Hajj Qasem Soleimani, Imam Khamenei— the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces—issued a decree appointing IRGC Brigadier General Esmaeil Qa’ani as the new Commander of the IRGC. The following is the text of the Commander-in-Chief’s decree:

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Following the ascent of the lofty martyr, the honorable General Hajj Qasem Soleimani (may God be pleased with him) I appoint the honorable Brigadier General Esmaeil Qa’ani—who has been among the most prominent IRGC Commanders during the Sacred Defense and has served alongside Martyr Soleimani in the Quds Force in the region for years — as the new Commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The strategy of the Quds Force will be identical to that during the time of Martyr General Soleimani. I ask all the colleagues in that Force to accompany and assist General Qa’ani, and I ask God to bestow success, confirmation, and divine guidance upon him.

Sayyid Ali Khamenei

    I wish him all the success and tawfiq in the world. Oh boy, I wish was a member of the IRGC! What an honorable status, being the soldier of the Islamic Republic. Is there anything you might need from a young educated software engineer living in Sweden? I would love to contribute in any way I can.
