In honor of the one-year anniversary of the assassination in Baghdad of Iran’s Quds Force commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani and militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Iran’s Channel 1 TV aired Farsi-Arabic-Hebrew song titled, “The Promise of a Hero.”

The singers, who are dressed in Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps uniforms, pledge revenge for Soleimani and al-Muhandis, “the martyrs of Islam.”

“Let us blow up the den of Satan […] Victory shall be ours. It is the responsibility of [Esmail] Ghaani,” Soleimani’s successor as commander of the Quds Force.

“We shall not allow the colonialists to stay on our land,” the singers continue, repeatedly chanting: “Death to America! Death to Israel!”
