President Trump orders U.S. Air Strike that killed General Qasem Soleimani, Commander Of Iran Backed Terrorist group Quds Force 

The Pentagon has confirmed the commander of the Iranian-backed terror group Quds Force is dead. In a statement, the Defense Department said Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was killed in a U.S. air strike near the airport in Baghdad on Thursday.

The Pentagon said Soleimani was one of the leaders who was behind recent attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and other U.S. military bases across Iraq.

Defense officials said his death will prevent future attacks on U.S. interests.
