IRGC Quds Force Commander General Qasem Soleimani, in an address marking the 10th anniversary of the death of Hizbullah commander Imad Mughniyah, said that his blood and the blood of other martyrs would not be avenged by the firing of one missile or the killing of one person. "The blood of Imad will be avenged by the removal and uprooting of the child-killing Zionist regime," he said. His address was broadcast live on IRINN TV on February 15.
Qasem Soleimani: "The blood of Imad [Mughniyah] will not be avenged by one missile. The blood of Imad [Mughniyah] will not be avenged by the killing of one person. The revenge for the blood of Imad, and all the others like him who were martyred in Palestine, in Lebanon, in Iran, and elsewhere, by means of a plot of the Zionist regime... The blood of Imad will be avenged by the removal and uprooting of the child-killing Zionist regime."
