Iranians happy to see Fakhrizadeh go — Israeli TV

Channel 13 news says it spoke to regular Iranians to get their take on the killing of Fakhrizadeh, and shockingly, they all seem to be happy he is gone.

One man says that if Israel killed “this freeloader, I kiss her hands”; a woman claims that “80 percent of the Iranian people are happy over the elimination of someone who wanted to take millions of lives in the future”; a third person says the killings of Fakhrizadeh and Quds Force head Qassem Soleimani are “the greatest security failure[s] in the past 41 years of the Islamic regime.”

The channel, which earlier this month reported that Iranian leaders were worried that they would be targeted by the US or Israel, says that the Iranians are now worried that their response to the killing, which they blame on Israel, could push the Trump administration to carry out more aggressive action, and are thus treading carefully.
