Hundreds participated in a #Baghdad procession which honoured slain Iranian Quds Force General Qassem #Soleimani and the deputy leader of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) Mohammed Ali Ebrahimi also known as Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis on Saturday, a day after they were killed in a US airstrike.
Carrying Kataib Hezbollah and PMF flags, people gathered at the Kamal Junblat Square, as the procession took place.
Soleimani and Ali Ebrahimi were killed in a US airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport in the early hours of Friday morning. Soleimani’s body is expected to be transported to Tehran where another funeral will take place on Sunday, January 5, before being buried in his hometown of Kerman.
