Italian geopolitical analysts, lawmakers remember General Soleimani


Many countries around the globe have been hosting events marking a year since the assassination of Iran’s top anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and senior Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi Al Muhandis. 

Also some Italian geopolitical analysts and lawmakers have remembered General Soleimani and reflected upon the implications of his assassination for the rest of the region and the world.

Tehran has expanded the list of Americans suspected of involvement in the assassination of its senior commander to include 48 names, with six countries being given warrants from Iran for the arrest of the suspects.

Soon after the assassination of General Soleimani, Italy made a strong appeal for moderation and responsibility, urging all parts to avoid acts that could have grave consequences for the whole region.

The Defense Ministry raised security at Italy’s overseas military bases, restricting all deployments outside bases to a minimum.

Approaching the one-year anniversary, Italian member of parliament Pino Cabras has outlined how General Soleimani’s assassination has changed the dynamics in the region.

In July, a United Nations investigation found that the United States’ targeted assassination of General Soleimani was unlawful and risked eroding international laws that govern the conduct of hostilities.
