Channel 1 of the Iranian TV aired a song titled "the Promise of a Hero" to mark the one-year anniversary of the assassination of Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis. The lyrics for the Farsi-Arabic-Hebrew song were written by Esmaeel. The singers, who are dressed in IRGC uniforms, pledge revenge for Soleimani and Al-Muhandis, and add: "Let us blow up the den of Satan [...] Victory shall be ours. It is the responsibility of Qaani," the new IRGC Qods Force Commander. They sing: "We shall not allow the colonialists to stay on our land" and repeatedly proclaim: "Death to America! Death to Israel!"

Singers: "The promise of the hero to Abu Mahdi and Soleimani. Let there be vengeance for Abu Mahdi and Soleimani. Let us blow up the den of Satan. Let us stone all the false idols. Victory shall be ours. It is the responsibility of Qaani.

"We love you, oh Iranian honor. We shall always follow your path, Qasem Soleimani. Abu Mahdi, the martyr of Islam. Your love will be in our hearts forever. Abu Mahdi, the martyr of Islam. Your love will be in our hearts forever. Death to America! Death to Israel! Death to America! Death to Israel!"
