Walorski Statement on Death of Qassem Soleimani
MISHAWAKA, Ind. – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today released the following statement on the death of Qassem Soleimani, head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps–Quds Force, a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization:
“Qassem Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. servicemembers and countless innocent civilians throughout the Middle East. Under his command, Iran-backed terrorists and militias recently escalated their attacks on Americans in Iraq, including targeting our military bases and our embassy in Baghdad, and he was actively plotting further attacks at the time of his death.
“A ruthless terrorist has been brought to justice, and there should be no doubt about our nation’s resolve: we will not tolerate attacks on Americans and our allies.”
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
