Source: Channel 1 (Iran)

IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Hossein Salami spoke at the funeral procession for Qods Force Commander Qasem Soleimani on January 7, 2020. He said that Iran will exact revenge and that it will be "hard and severe" and "the kind of revenge that causes remorse." He added that "the natural outcome of all of this is that the Muslims will leave no spot anywhere safe for the Americans." General Salami said that the Americans have set all their investments on fire with this "cowardly assassination." General Salami's remarks were met with chants of "Allah Akbar!" from the crowd. General Salami warned Iran's enemies that if they take another step, Iran will set the "place they love on fire" and in response, the crowd chanted: "Death to Israel!" The funeral procession was broadcast live on channel 1, Iranian TV.

 

Hossein Salami: "Let me start at the end: We shall exact revenge!"

Crowd: "Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar!"

Hossein Salami: "We shall exact revenge and it will be hard and severe, the kind of severe that causes remorse, decisive and final. You can rest assured. You can be calm.

"Today, in a miraculous way, the seed of hatred for America was planted in the hearts of Muslim and non-Muslim peoples. The natural outcome of all of this is that the Muslims will leave no spot anywhere safe for the Americans."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar!"

Hossein Salami: "We say to the Americans... We say to the Americans: You have set all your investments on fire with this cowardly assassination."

[...]

Hossein Salami: "Today and forever, the hearts are filled with hatred towards the Americans. This is the first necessary thing in order to form widespread struggle against the arrogance, until, inshallah, the world of Islam will be completely liberated from the evil of the devils and falsehoods. We say, once again: Our determination is strong. We say to our enemies: We will exact revenge, but if they take another step, we will set the place you love on fire."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar!"

Hossein Salami: "They already know what these places are. I won't go into detail."

Crowd: "Death to Israel! Death to Israel! Death to Israel! Death to Israel!"
