US tried and failed to kill ANOTHER top Iranian military official in Yemen -


Simultaneous mission targeted Iranian commander Abdul Reza Shahlai in Yemen

Shahlai is the Quds Forces' top financier in the region, funding terror groups

The mission to kill him failed, while Soleimani was killed in US drone strike 

Failed mission suggests Trump had broader plan to take out Quds leadership 

On the same day the U.S. military killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, U.S. forces carried out another top secret mission against a senior Iranian military official in Yemen, according to a new report.

The simultaneous strike targeting Abdul Reza Shahlai, a financier and key commander of Iran's elite Quds Force who has been active in Yemen, did not result in his death, four U.S. officials familiar with the matter told the Washington Post.

The successful January 3 strike that killed Soleimani sparked fury from the Iranian regime, which retaliated with ballistic missile strikes on two Iraqi bases that host U.S. troops but caused no casualties.
