TEHRAN (NIOC) – WEBWIRE

Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh expressed condolences over the martyrdom of the commander of the Quds Force of Iranís Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani.

Zangeneh said in a message although martyrdom was the reward of a lifetime of sincere diligence of Major General Haj Qasem Soleimani in Godís cause and for the dignity of the dear Iran, the loss of this great dedicated man is definitely a loss to the Islamic Republic.

The Iranian Minister of Petroleum stressed that Major Soleimani was a descendant of the martyrs of the sacred defense and was rightly among the believers who honored their allegiance to God of the martyrs.

ďHe is the eternal martyr of the Iranian nation, who joined his martyred companions with a great name,Ē further said Mr. Zangeneh.

ďI extend my heartfelt condolences to the great nation of Iran, the supreme leader, his noble family, and the family of all the martyrs, and I pray God will take his revenge from his vicious and terrorist assassins.Ē
