Tehran, YJC. The Iranian Foreign Ministry has strongly ruled out reports that Quds Corps Commander General Qassem Soleimani is injured.

Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab-African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Thursday refuted reports that the chief Iranian military figure has been injured while on advisory mission to the neighboring Iraq.

"Qasem Soleimani is safe and sound and such a report is false,' said Abdollahian in an interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency on Thursday.

He rejected reports by some foreign media about general Soleimani having been injured, adding that the Islamic Republic will continue its support for states which have chosen to fight terrorism.
