On the Brink of the Third World War (Part I & Part II) By Benes Ayo (11.1.2020) (12.1.2020)

It should be noted that Soleimani was one of the largest and most iconic military and political figures in Iran. He led the elite Quds Force, responsible for military intelligence and special operations outside of Iran itself. In addition, Soleimani has been actively involved in the Syrian conflict, supporting the forces of President Bashar al-Assad. Soleimani visited Moscow four times during 2015-2016, urging Russia to expand its military presence in Syria. Putin has called Soleimani “my friend Kasem” several times. There is evidence that it was Soleimani who pushed the Kremlin to launch a military operation in Syria on the side of the legitimate government.
