Qasem Soleimani's recent visit to Al-#Bukamal city and his inspection of the Iranian militias carries several messages, mainly:
- To reaffirm the promises he made to the elements and leaders of the Iranian militias when he visited #DeirEzzor in 2017-2018 during fighting against #Daesh, where he still repeatedly gives those promises of victory and the achieving of the goals set by the #Iranians.
- a message to the Syrian Democratic Forces (#SDF) "you cannot stand against us, no matter how powerful militarily you are."
- A message to the #USA that #Soleimani can move whenever and however he likes without being targeted "a kind of provocative act".
