Report: Soleimani’s Daughter Marries Top Hizbullah Leader
The daughter of former Iranian Quds Force chief Qasem Soleimani has reportedly married the son of a close cousin of Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah. According to media, Zeinab Soleimani, 28, tied the knot with the son of Hashim Safi al-Din, who is head of the Lebanon-based terrorist group’s Executive Council and thus considered the Iranian proxy’s second-in-command and Nasrallah’s most likely successor. The Hizbullah chief maintained close ties with Soleimani prior to the latter’s killing in January in a US drone strike in Baghdad. Zeinab previously tweeted a video of her meeting Nasrallah with the caption: “The spider nests of America and Zionists [Israelis and their supporters] will collapse.” Some analysts are construed the move as an attempt by Tehran to strengthen its alliance with Hizbullah, which is actively involved in military operations in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
