Princeton University guest professor Hossein Mousavian, who has served as Iran's Ambassador to Germany, said in a January 9, 2022 interview on Ofogh TV (Iran) that during a visit to the U.S. he heard that the wife of Brian Hook, the former U.S. Special Representative for Iran, could not sleep at night because she feared that her husband would be killed in retribution for his part in the assassination of IRGC Qods Force Commander General Qasem Soleimani.

Hossein Mousavian: "A few days after Iran hit Ayn Al-Asad Base, I traveled to America. An American said to me: 'The wife of [former U.S. Special Representative for Iran] Brian Hook could not sleep for a few nights now.

"Her entire body is shaking and she cries all the time. She [keeps] telling Brian: 'You would be killed because you participated in the killing of Hajj Qasem [Soleimani].' This is how their bodies are overcome with trembling."
