Zeinab Soleimani said in an exclusive interview with Lebanon's al-Mayadeen television network on Tuesday that what distinguished her father was that he was a "strong military field commander with very strong charisma, clever ... and besides that he had a remarkably compassionate and affectionate heart as well."
Zeinab said the top commander “used to capture the hearts of people,” and that, “My father used to find his way through people's hearts, especially those who worked with them and those close to him."
General Soleimani’s daughter underlined that his father’s field presence alongside other military forces was the result of his “belief in the necessity of standing by the oppressed.”
“He did not differentiate between the Lebanese, Syrian, Iranian, Palestinian or Yemeni people. Any aggression against people, their money and their honor was a red line for him,” Zeinab told al-Mayadeen television network.
She also said that the issue of Palestine and the Palestinian people was "very important” to General Soleimani, and stressed that, "he used all his capabilities to serve the Palestinian cause and the result is that we see today the strength of the Palestinian resistance movement."
Zeinab concluded that those behind the brutal assassination of General Soleimani would pay the price "in the most horrific possible way."
