Iran: 'Cemetery' of American, Israeli Soldiers Installed at Former US Embassy

A permanent installation symbolising a ‘cemetery’ of US and Israeli soldiers has been set up at the former US embassy in Tehran, as footage filmed on Wednesday shows. It was made by members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Basij militia on Monday.

The installation imitates a funeral with crosses and coffins in front of a giant poster of general Qasem Soleimani who was killed in a US drone strike in Iraq earlier in January.

The assassination triggered further escalation of the US-Iran tensions with Tehran responding with attacks on US bases in Iraq. During Friday prayers, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed to expel US troops from the region.

The former US embassy has been defunct since Washington and Tehran severed diplomatic ties following the 1979 hostage crisis.
