Watch: Posters of Soleimani, al-Mohandes hoisted inside Iraq’s parliament

Saturday, 19 December 2020 19:42

Large posters and banners of slain Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani were hoisted inside the halls of the Iraqi parliament ahead of preparations to mark the one-year-anniversary of his assassination by US forces, according to a video being shared online.

According to parliamentary sources, Iraqi MPs plan to hold a memorial to mark the one-year anniversary of Soleimani’s death alongside Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes who were both killed on Jan. 3, 2020.

The sources added that official invitations were sent out to a large number of Iraqi politicians and party leaders, led by pro-Iran parties in Iraq’s parliament under the al-Fateh Alliance umbrella led by Hadi al-Amiri.

Two months ago, many Iraqis in the southern city of Karbala expressed outrage at the release of images of Iranian leader Ali Khamenei and the commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, who was killed on the Baghdad airport campus earlier this year.
 
It is noteworthy that this is not the first time that images of Iranian supreme leader and Soleimani have been distributed in Iraqi cities. Earlier, they were circulated in Baghdad, Diyala and other southern provinces, including Basra. In recent demonstrations, many young people burned and destroyed these images, expressing their anger at Iran's interference in the country.
