The semi-official Fars news agency said Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019, that authorities foiled an assassination attempt against Soleimani, the head of the Revolutionary Guard’s foreign wing, or Quds Force, last month. The report Thursday said the attempt against Soleimani occurred in September when Soleimani planned to attend a religious ceremony in the southeastern Kerman province.
