DUBAI (Reuters) - The United States has created “global anti-US fury and a worldwide rancor” by killing senior Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Monday.

“What the US has accomplished in its terrorist assassination of anti-ISIS heroes is to unleash global anti-US fury and a worldwide rancor—on a scale not seen in recent memory,” Zarif wrote. “End of malign U.S. presence in West Asia has begun.”
