Resistance front kills US and Israeli commanders involved in the assassination of General Soleimani: ReportAhlulBayt News Agency – ABNA


In retaliation for the US assassination of the top anti-terror commanders General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the resistance axis reportedly killed two American and Israeli commanders.

In retaliation for the US assassination of the top anti-terror commanders General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the resistance axis reportedly killed two American and Israeli commanders.

The Cradle, which describes itself as a journalist-run publication on West Asia, learned through a high-level security source that the Axis of Resistance killed two high-ranking American and Israeli commanders in a military operation in Erbil, northern Iraq.

The operation was carried out to avenge the killings of the commander of the Quds force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) General Soleimani and deputy commander of the Iraqi Hashd al-Shaabi Mahdi al-Muhandis, the report said on Monday.

The report quoted a “senior resistance axis security officer” and identified the men killed as Lt. Col. James C. Willis, 55, of Albuquerque and the Red Horse Unit, an American commander, and Col. Sharon Asman, 42, of the Nahal Brigade, an Israeli commander.

Both the US and Israeli regimes claimed the commanders were killed in various accidents every day.

The Pentagon alleged on June 27 that Willis had died in a non-combat incident at the Al-Udeid base in Qatar, without providing further details.

The Stars and Stripes, an American military newspaper, described him as “Commanders of the 210th Red Horse Squadron,” a 130-strong unit that “provides civil engineering with rapid response capabilities to conduct operations in remote, highly threatening environments.”

According to the Israeli media, Asman died on July 1 “after collapsing while doing fitness training on a military base in central Israel”. In his 25-year career he had fought in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, among others.

However, The Cradle rejected media reports aimed at obscuring the truth and quoted the security source as saying that both Willis and Asman were killed in Erbil during an operation against those involved in the Soleimani and Muhandis killings .

This year there have been at least two different attacks on targets of the Israeli espionage agency Mossad in Iraq.

The first incident occurred in mid-April, following the Israeli sabotage attack on the Iranian nuclear facility in Natanz, attacks on ships on both sides in regional waters and the murder of Iran’s top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh last November.

The Cradle source did not provide information about the timing of the attacks that killed Willis and Asman.

“Iran has changed the equation of how to deal with the (Israeli) regime,” the source was quoted as referring to Iran’s new self-confident stance towards the Israeli regime.

This is the first time a Resistance Axis official has taken responsibility for retaliation against the murderers of top Iranian and Iraqi commanders, The Cradle said in the report.

General Qassem Soleimani and Mahdi al-Muhandis, the two iconic figures in the fight against the Daesh terrorist group, were killed in a US air strike outside Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020.

Days after the bold act, the IRGC fired a volley of rockets at a large military base that was home to American troops in Iraq.

Iranian officials have repeatedly vowed to avenge the deaths of the two top commanders and the murder of their leading nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

Iran has denounced the attacks as “state terrorism” and vowed to end the American presence in the region as the ultimate act of revenge, while calling on neighboring Iraq to evict US forces from the country.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian promised last week to pursue the case and bring the perpetrators to justice.

“Following up on this case and bringing the state terrorists to justice is one of the key measures taken by the Iranian Foreign Ministry,” he said last Tuesday during a meeting of the Special Committee on the Legal and International Prosecution of General Soleimani’s assassination.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs acknowledges its actual duty to pursue this issue legally, politically and internationally,” he emphasized and at the same time emphasized the need to keep General Soleimani’s memory alive.

On Monday, the Iranian Defense Minister Brig. General Mohammad-Reza Gharaei Ashtiani also promised a “devastating response” to any “careless move” by the enemy.

The newly appointed minister said Iran has repeatedly stressed that its defense capabilities and advances in new technologies and domestic innovations should ensure national security and respond to any external aggression.

“The enemies of the Iranian nation will definitely receive a devastating reaction to any careless and reckless action and result in high costs,” Brig said. General Ashtiani claimed, referring to the Israeli regime.
