The son of an Iranian, who was killed in Syria, read a "letter to Qasem Soleimani" on Iranian channel 5 TV on January 1, 2021. In the letter, the boy says that he, along with the other children of the martyrs, promises to be loyal to the Supreme Leader Khamenei, who is "more dear to us than our own lives." He said that the revenge for Soleimani's assassination would mean "the complete annihilation of America and Israel."
Boy: "We, the children of the martyrs, form an alliance with you [Soleimani], who is more dear to us than our own lives, and promise to continue to be as loyal to the Leader as you have been and to always obey the orders of our master and teacher, our imam who is more dear to us than our own lives, Sayyid Ali Khamenei.
"We promise to never forsake him. In the words of the honorable commander-in-chief of the IRGC, we shall exact our decisive and hard revenge. As for you, stupid and idiotic enemy, do not think that our hard revenge was the destruction of your military base in Iraq.
"Hajj Qasem's hard revenge means the complete annihilation of America and Israel. So be prepared, for the Lord's promise is truth. We respond to your call, Hussein. We respond to your call, Zeinab. We respond to your call, Qasem Soleimani."
