Not even 24 hours later, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei appointed Brigadier General Esmael Qa’ani as the new commander of the IRGC Quds Force, to take his place.

Qa’ani, who served up to this point as Soleimani’s deputy, steps into his dead boss’s shoes immediately.

Khamenei, who is the country’s “commander-in-chief” of the Iranian Armed Forces, described the new commander as one of the most “prominent military commanders during the Sacred Defense –the Iraqi imposed war on Iran in the 1980s- and who has served in the Quds Force for many years,” according to a report by the semi-official Tasnim News Agency.

According to the report, the Supreme Leader emphasized that the plans of the Quds Force under its new commander “would be the same as those under the command of Martyr Soleimani.” He also urged the Quds Force troops to “cooperate with General Qa’ani.”
