Lt. General Soleimani was the former commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
He was assassinated by a US strike on January 3, 2020, when he was on an official visit to the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
Hitting his convoy, the barbaric assault also led to the martyrdom of many others, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) or Hashd al-Sha’abi anti-terror force.
