Zeinab Soleimani, the 28-year-old daughter of assassinated IRGC Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani, has reportedly married a close relative of  Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, N12 reported on Sunday.
Over the weekend, Zeinab Soleimani married Riza Safi al-Din, son of Nasrallah's cousin Hashim Safi al-Din.
Al-Din heads Hezbollah's Executive Council, and is considered the No. 2 in the organization. He is viewed by most as Nasrallah's future replacement.
Hezbollah had close ties to Qasem Soleimani until his assassination in January. The marriage between Zeinab and Riza might express an even tighter relationship being formed between the Lebanon-based terrorist organization and Iran.
Zeinab first appeared in the public eye when Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei visited the family's home to offer condolences after the assassination of Soleimani.
At her father's funeral, Zeinab called on Nasrallah, Yemeni Houthi rebel leader Abdalmalek Houthi and Syrian President Bashar Assad, whom she called her "uncles," to take revenge for the attack on her father. She was the first woman to address a prayer congregation led by Khamenei.
Zeinab tweeted a video of her meeting with Nasrallah along with the text "The spider nests of America and Zionists will collapse."
During a visit in Beirut, Zeinab also gave a speech at an event organized by Hezbollah Women's Affairs, in which she said that the "martyrs" of Hezbollah and Iran were guardians of Khamenei's and Islamic Republic founder Ruhollah Khomeini's "values."
