The high-profile assassinations are likely to be a massive blow to Iran, which has been locked in a long conflict with the United States that escalated sharply last week with an attack on the US embassy in Iraq.

Soleimani's killing marks a dramatic escalation in the regional “shadow war" between Iran and the US and its allies.

Soleimani, who has led the foreign arm of the Revolutionary Guards and has had a key role in fighting in Syria and Iraq, acquired celebrity status at home and abroad.

Soleimani survived several assassination attempts against him by Western and Israeli agencies over the past two decades.
