IRGC commander makes first visit to Syria since Qassem Soleimani’s assassination, says US & Israel criminal conspiracies not ended yet

The commander of the Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) Quds Force, Ismail Ghaani, recently visited the Albukamal area in eastern Syria, first since U.S assassination of the late commander Lit Gen Qassem Soleimani; The Iranian semi official Tasnim News Agency reported.

Iranian Ghaani took command of the Quds Force early this year, succeeding Major-General Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated by the U.S. near the Baghdad International Airport on January 3rd.

According to the report by the News Agency on Saturday,  Ghaani visited the areas of operations against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in Albukamal, where he delivered a speech, in which he held the United States and Israel responsible for establishing and supporting ISIS, describing them as “two criminal regimes whose conspiracies have not ended yet.”

The new commander of the Quds Force also touched on the American internal agenda, accusing the United States government of “violently suppressing its people” and seeking to exercise the same methods against other peoples.

Prior to taking command of the Quds Force, Ghaani served as Soleimani’s long-time confidant and deputy commander of the IRGC unit. The Quds Force commander is expected to maintain many of Soleimani’s policies, including the support of groups hostile towards Israel and the United States.
