Iranian animation reveals killing of Soleimani, Tehran’s ‘harsh revenge’


An Iranian animation video aired by the Fars information company and titled “harsh revenge” depicts the killing of prime normal Qassem Soleimani and the following Iranian missile assault on a US airbase in Iraq.

The clip, aired on February 11, reveals Soleimani arriving at Baghdad Worldwide Airport and driving out in a automobile moments earlier than his assassination in an American drone strike in early January.

Set to melodramatic music, it depicts a stoic Soleimani closing his eyes moments earlier than his automobile is struck by three missiles, seemingly accepting his destiny.

The video then goes on to painting mass demonstrations in Iran in honor of Soleimani, who was commander of the Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds Power.

Iranian troops are then seen planning their revenge, with missiles launched at US forces on the Ayn al-Asad airbase in Iraq and destroying buildings as troopers flee. One missile destroys a drone in a hangar — seemingly the identical one used to take out Soleimani.

The US initially stated no troops have been within the Iranian strike, although it has since reported that over 100 troopers have been identified with traumatic mind accidents. The bulk have returned to obligation.

The video ends with the voice of Iran’s Supreme Chief Ali Khamenei saying America acquired “a slap” and that the US’s “corrupting presence within the area should come to an finish.”

The video was made accessible with an English translation by the Center East Media Analysis Institute.

After Soleimani’s killing, Fars aired one other video which dramatized a fictional assault on the White Home in revenge for Soleimani’s loss of life, and depicted the deaths of US President Donald Trump and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by the hands of an Iranian hit squad.

Though some Iranian officers have threatened that extra assaults will comply with, Iran’s International Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted after the barrage that the nation had “concluded proportionate measures in self-defense.”
