Ebrahim Raisi, head of Iran's judiciary said in a memorial for IRGC Qods Force commander Qasem Soleimani, which was aired on IRINN TV (Iran) on January 1, 2020, that Iran will exact revenge against anyone who was involved in the assassination of Soleimani. He said that those who gave the order to assassinate Soleimani as well as those who "committed the crime" will not be safe anywhere on the globe. Raisi added that even the President of the United States is not immune to Iranian justice. For more about Raisi, see MEMRI TV clips No. 7654 and 7327.
Ebrahim Raisi: "The [Americans] should wait for the hard revenge. The beloved resistance forces will determine the place and the time. The Islamic nation knows at what point in time and where this revenge will be exacted. The enemy should know that its life will be very difficult from now on. The resistance movement will make the enemy's life much more difficult in revenge for the blood of the martyr Soleimani. One of the aspects of the hard revenge will be driving the Americans out of the region. Punishing those who gave the order and those who committed the crime is another aspect of this hard revenge.
"I am addressing the enemy. Let no one think that if someone holds the position of the U.S. President, yet he commits or orders a murder, he will be immune to the enforcement of law and justice, and will remain on the sidelines. Never! Those who played a role in this assassination, in this crime – none of them will be safe anywhere on the globe. This is final. The steel willpower of the resistance movement will exact hard revenge from them."
