Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron have expressed concern about a possible regional escalation following the assassination of Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Al Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

The Russian presidency confirmed – in a statement reported by Russian news channel – that the two leaders expressed in the call that was taken on the initiative of the French side, their concern about the assassination of Soleimani, and stressed that this American step may lead to a dangerous escalation that exacerbates the tension in the region.

The popular crowd in Iraq announced at dawn today the killing of the commander of the “Quds Force” Qassem Soleimani in an American air strike near Baghdad airport that targeted him and a group of leaders of the “popular crowd” including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second man in the crowd.
