On Jan 3, 2020, Lt. Gen. Soleimani was assassinated in a U.S. terrorist attack near Baghdad airport shortly after he arrived in the city to meet the Iraqi Prime Minister.
The assassination was called unlawful by a UN Special Rapporteur and was a violation of security agreements between Washington and Baghdad. It caused a wave of popular protests against the American military presence in the Western Asia.
Martyr Soleimani will be remembered for his courage, wisdom and an unparalleled role in the fight against terrorism and extremism.
The Iranian nation will never forget and will never forgive the criminal assassination and will not rest until bringing those responsible to justice.
