Commander of the IRGC Quds Force, Ismail Qaani

“According to the actions on the agenda of the resistance forces, the expulsion of US forces in the region is imminent”.

He also said:

“We warn the US President, the CIA Director, the Secretary of Defense, the US Secretary of State and other US officials involved in the assassination of Martyr Soleimani that they must learn the secret lifestyle of Salman Rushdie as the Islamic Republic will avenge the unjustly shed blood of Martyr Soleimani”.

— Salman Rushdie is the writer of the “satanic verses”, a book that insults the holy Prophet of Islam, Muhammad ‎ﷺ for which reason Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa that called upon all Muslims around the world to kill Rushdie wherever they may find him.

Ever since Khomeini’s fatwa, Rushdie has had the tightest security team in the UK after the prime minister and the royal family.
