TEHRAN (IQNA) – A memorial service will be held this Thursday for Mohsen Hojaji who was recently killed by Daesh terrorists in Syria.

Quran Community to Hold Memorial Service for Martyr Hojaji

Iran’s Quranic community will organize the memorial service for the martyr in his hometown of Najafabad, the central province of Isfahan.

A Quran recitation session will also be held at the city’s Mosalla (prayer hall) before noon prayers on the same day.

The session, expected to be attended by a number of prominent Quran reciters, will be broadcast live on the Quran TV and Quran Radio.

Hojaji, a member of the Iranian advisory support team in Syria, was taken captive by the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) Takfiri terrorist group near the Iraqi border last week and beheaded two days later.

In a statement on Thursday and following the beheading of Hojaji in Syria, Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards’ Quds Force, said Iranian forces would not rest until they have wiped out every last terrorist from the face of the Muslim world.

He added that the "horrific, inhumane crime” came in the wake of successive blows dealt on several fronts to Takfiri-Wahhabi terror groups, which are tied to global arrogance.

"The atrocity does not fall within any Islamic, or even humanitarian principle or law,” the statement said.

At the request of Iraq and Syria, the Islamic Republic has been providing advisory assistance to the respective countries’ armies in their fight against Takfiri terrorists.
