"I, as a soldier, respond to you", Soleimani further said. "You must know what you are talking about; ask your predecessors and take advantage of their experiences", General Soleimani emphasized.

In a speech broadcast by Iran's al-Alam channel, Suleimani threatened Trump by saying that "The Red Sea is no longer secure".
