U.S. gives Israel go-ahead to kill General Soleimani: report

January 3, 2018

TEHRAN – The U.S. has given Israel the green light to assassinate General Qassem Soleimani, who commands the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported on Monday. 

Al-Jarida quoted an unnamed source in Jerusalem who said that the two allies have made a quiet agreement after deciding that Soleimani is a “threat to the two countries’ interests in the region.”

According to the same source, the Americans, during the Obama administration, thwarted an Israeli attempt to kill Soleimani three years ago near Damascus, warning the Iranians about the plan.
