Ten people were killed in the blast and Soleimani was ripped to pieces, leaving little behind to ascertain that the intended target was actually killed. With only scraps of bodies to work with, Soleimani’s death was confirmed by the remains of his arm, still wearing a large red ring he never removed.
The New York Post asked jewelers about the ring.

Twenty-four hundred years ago the bloodline of Esau showed up in Persia, modern-day Iran. Israel’s first king Saul had been given explicit instructions to kill all the Amalekites (men women and children) to stamp out the divergent bloodline of Amalek, grandson of Esau.
In 1 Samuel 15:17 King David, Israel’s second king tried to wipe out all the Amalekites, but “400 escaped”.
