Following father's killing by US forces, Zeinab delivered searing speech at Tehran memorial

The daughter of killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani wed over the weekend the son of a senior Hezbollah member, Hebrew-language outlet N12 reported.

The daughter, 17-year-old Zeinab Soleimani, married the son of Hassan Nasrallah’s cousin, Hashim Safi Al-Din -- the potential successor of the terrorist organization’s chief.

Following the killing of Soleimani in January 2020 by American forces, Zeinab delivered a searing 10-minute eulogy at her father’s memorial in Tehran on January 6.

Branding US President Donald Trump as “Trump the Gambler,” she triggered a threat to “the families of the American soldiers… [who] will spend their days waiting for the death of their children,” according to US public radio NPR.

Soleimani further said the president was a “puppet by the hands of the Zionists” as the massive crowd chanted “Death to America,” according to N12.

During a meeting with Nasrallah back in January, the Shiite terrorist told the deceased general’s daughter that “Allah gave me the grand honor to be a part of Jihad, and granted your father to end his life as a Shaheed. It’s the most beautiful thing possible,” as cited by N12.
