Report adds further evidence Iran’s Soleimani was killed by new highly precise missile | The Drive

A new Pentagon report reveals additional details on the strike that killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Iraq just over a year ago. These add to the amounting evidence that an AGM-179A Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) was used to kill Soleimani. There is also evidence that Joint Special Operations Command and the Central Intelligence Agency have been using these missiles since at least 2016. Fragments found at the scene match the official rendering of the weapon, and wording including “WARNING, 2-MAN LIFT, WT: 52.0kg/115LB” is stenciled on one of the pieces.
