Qasim Sulaimani killed: Iranian General Arrives in Kerman, Hometown for Burial

Iranian general Qasim Sulaimani, who was killed in a US attack last Friday in Iraq, is being buried in his hometown of Kerman.

A large number of people, dressed in black, also gathered in Kerman on Tuesday to pay tribute to millions after attending their funeral on Monday in the capital Tehran.

Qasim Sulaimani was a national hero in Iran and was considered the most powerful figure in the country after Ayatollah Khamenei.

A large gathering in the Iranian capital of Tehran has attended the funeral of General Qasim Sulaimani, killed in a US attack in Baghdad.
Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was offered prayers in Tehran on Monday by senior officials including President Hassan Rouhani, Chief Justice Ibrahim Raisi, parliament speaker Ali Larijani, new commander of the Quds Force Ismail Qani.

General Suleimani was killed in a drone attack outside Baghdad airport on Friday morning. In this incident, five people, including the commander of the pro-Iranian pro-Iraqi militia Qutb-e-Hezbollah, Abu Hamed Mahindas, were killed.

US President Donald Trump has ordered the death of Qasim Sulaimani, while Iran has said he will avenge his general’s death. Iran withdraws from the 2015 World Nuclear Treaty after the attack and began enriching uranium.
