IRGC's intelligence unit thwarts Arab-Israeli plot to assassinate Gen. Soleimani
[PRESSTV] The intelligence unit of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has thwarted an Arab-Israeli plot to assassinate Major General Qassem Soleimani
, a globally famous defense strategist who played a key role in the counter-terrorism operations that led to the collapse of the ISIS
...embracing their inner Islamic Brute...
terror group in Iraq and Syria.

Hossein Taeb, the head of the IRGC’s intelligence unit, said on Thursday that plot ‐ hatched by Hebrew-Arab intelligence services
...an oddly specific combination...
‐ would see a team of terrorist recruits enter Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
to pave the way for a kaboom targeting Soleimani, who commands the IRGC’s Quds Force, in the country’s southeastern province of Kerman.

According to Taeb, the holy warriors were supposed to buy a place next to a Husseiniyah (religious hall) belonging to General Soleimani’s late father, plant 350-500 kilograms of explosives beneath the place, and blow up the site during Tasu’a and Ashura mourning processions marking the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (PTUI!), the third Shia Imam, on September 8-9.

The plotters were, however, under watch since they transferred the terrorist cell’s members to a neighboring state
...Israel is not a neighbour of Iran, as I understand the region’s geography. Looking at a map, Pakistan’s Balochistan province facing Iran’s southeastern Sistan&Baluchistan province, both sides of the border populated by excitable Sunni Balochis. A number of jihadi groups find sanctuary on the Pakistani side of the border, from there stealing into Iran to cause problems for those dreadful Shiites...
for high-cost training programs before carrying out the terror plot, the IRGC official said.

Following a “precise and smart intelligence operation,” the IRGC’s intelligence unit “succeeded in arresting the three-member team,” he said, adding that the “Hebrew-Arab services” had spent several years to draw up the plot for such crime.
Rudaw adds:
Qasem Soleimani has been on the US Department of State’s list of sanctioned holy warriors since 2007. He is believed to receive direct orders from Khamenei and is the main architect of the Iran policy across the Middle East.

Soleimani is a central figure in the dispute between Iran and the United States over IRGC activities across the Middle East, including in Iraq, Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of...
and Leb.

#2 I sure hope nobody on their side notices that Soleimani escaped a whole lot of Mossad assassination attempts.
