Lucknow: The American military after killing Iran’s most powerful commander,General Qasem Soleimani, unsuccessfully tried to kill another senior Iranian military leader in Yemen the same day.

The disclosure of a second mission, reportedly indicated that the Trump administration had plans for a border campaign that was previously known. The unsuccessful airstrike in Yemen was aimed at Abdul Reza Shahlai, an official with Iran’s Quds Force, a potent military organization that General Soleimani had led.
