A group of Iranians came to the US embassy in Berlin to thank the United States for the assassination of General of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Qassem Soleimani. This was reported by the Twitter account of the diplomatic mission of the country in Germany.
According to the embassy, the meeting took place on January 6, three days after information appeared on the death of an Iranian general. “[US Ambassador to Germany Richard] Grenell received from the Iranians gratitude notes and hand-made signs supporting US actions,” the statement said.
An Iranian-born activist living in Germany, Nila Behzadi, confirmed the meeting. She noted that the messages transmitted to the embassy contain words in support of the actions of President Donald Trump “in the fight against the Iranian terrorist regime”.
Grenell has publicly advocated U.S. action on Soleimani. In an interview with the German edition of Bild, the ambassador also noted that he “receives a bunch of emails from Iranians from the USA, Europe and Iran.” According to him, they thank America for the operation, but do not speak out in public, as they are afraid to be arrested for expressing opinions on social networks.
