Iran urges UN Security Council to hold US, Israel accountable for Soleimani assassination

Iran’s ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations Majid Takht-Ravanchi has urged the UN Security Council to hold the United States and Israel responsible for the assassination of Iran’s top anti-terror commander General Qassem Soleimani.

“Given the dire implications of this terrorist act on international peace and security, the Security Council must live up to its Charter-based responsibilities and hold the United States and the Israeli regime to account for planning, supporting, and committing the terrorist act,” Takht-Ravanchi wrote in a letter addressed to the rotating president of the UN Security Council Mona Juul.

Takht-Ravanchi went on to emphasize that General Soleimani played a significant role in combatting international terrorism, PressTV reported.

General Soleimani was targeted along with his companions on January 3, 2020. Five days later, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) launched a volley of ballistic missiles at the Ain al-Asad airbase in Iraq’s western province of Anbar and at another airbase in Erbil in the Kurdistan Region.
