On Friday 3 January 2020 the convoy carrying Qasem Soleimani, commander of Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Quds force; and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis one of the Iraqi commanders of Kataib Hezbollah group was attacked by American forces near Baghdad airport and the two commanders were killed.
The killing of Soleimani was directly ordered by Trump. Islamic Republic’s interventions in the region and attack on American embassy in Iraq was retaliated by eliminating Soleimani which led to Khamenei’s talk of “severe revenge”. The killing of Soleimani intensifies the tensions between Islamic Republic and US in the region and creates further more insecurity and terrorism in the region.
Soleimani is the symbol of Islamic terrorism and essence of the Islamic regime. He has been responsible for huge number of atrocities in the region and he has been the sole perpetrator of mass killings of people in Iraq, Iran and Syria. Such increase in regional tension between American government and the Islamic regime only intensifies an atmosphere of terror, fear and insecurity for the people who have risen to protest against the statuesque. From the point of view of the people who are the constant victims of terrorist wars, the world is more tolerate-able without characters like Soleimani, al-Mohandis, Trump, and Khamenei.
Worker-communist Party of Iran - Hekmatist sees the terrorist tension between American government and Islamic Republic as an attempt against the revolutionary struggle of the workers and people of the region and the world. We call upon people of Iran, Iraq and the world to oppose the terrorist groups and governments. Overcoming terrorism in Iran and Iraq and achieving freedom and liberation is only possible by revolutionary overthrow of the ruling powers and establishment of a free and equal society where safe conditions are made possible for peaceful solidarity for the people of the region.
Down with Islamic Republic!
Freedom, Equality, Workers’ State!
Long Live Socialist Republic!
