Iraqi media outlets confirmed Soleimani's murder besides the killing of the deputy chief of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis.

Also, Pentagon officials confirmed the killing of Iran's most senior commander.

Three katyusha rockets targeted Baghdad airport burned two vehicles, which are thought that Soleimani was in one of them, and injured several people, according to Iraq's Security Media Cell.

The PMF, on its Facebook page, described the US strikes as "cowardly U.S. bombing."

"The American and Israeli enemy is responsible for killing the mujahideen Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qassem Soleimani," Ahmed Al-Assadi, a PMF spokesman, was quoted by Reuters as saying.

The escalation between the United States and Iran ramped up after Iranian-backed Iraqi paramilitary groups broke into the US Embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday following US air raids on Sunday against Tehran-backed Kataib Hezbollah militia bases in retaliation for missile attacks that killed a US contractor in northern Iraq last week.

Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei who had a close relationship with Qassem Soleimani, called him a "living martyr"
