Iran says it foiled “Israeli-Arabic” attempt to assassinate Quds Force chief Soleimani
BREAKING: Iran says it has foiled an “Israeli-Arabic” attempt to assassinate the Quds Force terror group chief Qassem Soleimani.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards intelligence chief announced that the plot was uncovered and the team that was planning to eliminate Soleimani was arrested.
Earlier this week, Soleimani claimed that Israel came close to killing him during the Second Lebanon War.
In a rare interview, Qassem Soleimani – who was in Beirut at the time of the 34-day war – recalled that one night he and Hezbollah’s second-in-command terrorist Imad Mughniyeh went outside and were spotted by Israeli surveillance drones.
He said that the pair were under constant surveillance of Israel and miraculously escaped the building that was bombed.
Israeli spy planes were “constantly” flying over the Hezbollah stronghold of Dahiyeh, a neighborhood of Beirut, with Jerusalem “watching every movement” on the ground, he said.
