Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has appointed Brigadier Esmail Ghaani as the new leader of the Quds Force, Iran’s Tasnim new agency reported Friday.

Ghaani was serving as Soleimani’s deputy. In a decree, Khamenei described him as one of the most prominent military commanders during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s.

Soleimani was killed in a US strike on Baghdad’s international airport Friday morning.

The Pentagon said President Trump had ordered his “killing,” after a pro-Iran mob this week laid siege to the US embassy in Iraq.
