US Standing at Peak of Animosity Towards Iran since Islamic RevolutionThe US animosity towards Iran has reached its highest level since the Islamic Revolution, Larijani said on Wednesday in a local ceremony, noting that “We are now seeing a full-scale confrontation” where Washington carries out an act of “state terrorism”.

 “The martyrdom of General Soleimani led to an awakening in Iran and the region,” he stated, adding that the incident “created unity inside the country which in part affects other countries.”

 “A superpower assassinates our General who was a guest in another country … this tarnished the US image,” Larijani added.

“Westerners and Americans are using all means and plots to impede Iran’s economic growth and consequently to put pressure on people,” he said.

Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani was assassinated in a US drone strike on Baghdad International Airport in Iraq on January 3.

The airstrike also martyred Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), or Hashad al-Shaabi. The two were martyred in an American airstrike that targeted their vehicle on the road to the airport.

Five Iranian and five Iraqi militaries were martyred by missiles fired by the US drone at Baghdad International Airport.
