‘General Soleimani, an icon of war against capitalization’
Ahead of the first anniversary of the assassination of the former commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps General Qassem Soleimani, people are now holding commemoration ceremonies to pay respect to this late Iranian icon.
We went to the city of Qom where a movement called Resistance Youth Front is formed to support the cause of General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis who defeated the ominous phenomenon of Daesh.
Scholars, youths, activists, and resistance movement supporters from countries like Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India attended the ceremony to tell the world that General Soleimani’s cause will not be forgotten.
General Qassem Soleimani was assassinated by a US strike on January 3 last year when he was on an official visit to the Iraqi capital Baghdad. Hitting his convoy, the assault also led to the death of many others, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units or Hashd al-Sha’abi.
Apart from this ceremony within the coming days a number of other events will be held under health protocols across Iran to pay tribute to General Qassem Soleimani.
