TEHRAN (IQNA) – Palestinians held a ceremony Gaza City marking the first anniversary of martyrdom of General Qasem Soleimani.

 

Leaders of Hamas and the Islamic Jihad movement were among those attending the event on Monday, according to Press TV.

General Soleimani, who commanded the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), was admired as the Middle East's most influential and charismatic counter-terrorism leader.

He played a key role in helping Iraq and Syria defeat foreign-backed terrorists, chiefly Daesh, in late 2017.

He also played a major role in strengthening Palestinian resistance movements against the Israeli regime.

Following the assassination of General Soleimani Palestinians held several events to pay tribute to the late Iranian commander.

They consider him as a hero for Palestine and Jerusalem al-Quds.

The top commander was assassinated on January 3, 2020 in a drone strike in Baghdad upon a direct order by US President Donald Trump.

His Iraqi trenchmate Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iraq’s Hashd al-Sha’abi anti-terror force, along with several others were also killed when their convoy was hit.
