Soleimani- IRIB@

DUBAI, Jan 9 (Reuters) - The new head of Iran's Quds Force said he would continue the course pursued by his predecessor, Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike last week.

"We will continue in this luminous path with power," Brigadier General Esmail Ghaani said, noting that Iranian missile strikes carried out on U.S. targets at a base in Iraq on Wednesday would eventually drive America out of the region. (Reporting By Babak Dehghanpisheh)
