WASHINGTON, DC / ACCESSWIRE / January 10, 2022 / Since the January 3, 2020 killing of IRGC Qods Force Commander Qassem Soleimani in Iraq, MEMRI has been adding new translations and research related to his killing, its aftermath, and its ongoing ramifications to the MEMRI Iran Studies Project archive and the Iran Threat Monitor Project.
MEMRI maintains the largest archive of translated Iranian media content as part of its Iran Studies Project. The new reports and clips related to the second anniversary of the killing of Soleimani include Iran-backed Shi'ite groups vowing revenge, threats against CENTCOM Commander McKenzie, threats to attack the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, and statements by Iranian President Raisi that former President Trump must stand trial for Soleimani's killing, and other statements and events commemorating Soleimani and vowing to continue his legacy.
Earlier content in the Iran Studies Project archive related to Soleimani's killing included translations of statements by Soleimani as well as initial reactions to his killing by Iranian government, military, religious, and media figures. MEMRI also translated and reported on what media in Arabic, Turkish, and Urdu were saying at the time, and has continued to add other relevant translations, reports, and videos to its archives.
The MEMRI Iran Studies Project, headed by native-born Iranians, is the only research project in the world that monitors and analyzes materials from the Iranian media on a day-to-day basis. It has produced hundreds of hours of translations from Iran's most important media outlets and websites, including over 40 newspapers and more than 30 TV channels. Also, it has published hundreds of original analyses on issues of vital importance, such as Iran's pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile capability and its expansion of its military; the increasing activity of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) within the country and the IRGC Qods Force outside its borders; political revolt in the country and its violent suppression by the regime; speeches and statements by military leaders; speeches by leaders including Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Ebrahim Raisi; sermons by senior religious figures; and more.
