Iran: Thousands Rally in Response to US Assassination of Soleimani

Thousands of Iranians flooded the streets of Tehran, Kerman and Tabriz City following Friday prayers in response to news of the targeted assassination of Iran’s Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani.

Soleimani was killed in an airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport in the early hours of Friday morning, along with Jamal Jafaar Mohammed Ali Ebrahimi, also known as Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the leader of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (Hashd al-Shaabi), an organization with reportedly close ties to the Quds Force.

The Pentagon released a statement confirming the US had carried out the airstrike at the order of US President Donald Trump, calling it a “decisive defensive action to protect US personnel abroad.” Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed “harsh revenge” against the perpetrators of Soleimani’s death.
