Paraded in an American Chevy: Thousands in Baghdad mourn arch-terrorist Soleimani
Thousands of terror fans gathered Saturday for a funeral procession for Iran’s arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani, who was eliminated in a US airstrike and was paraded through Baghdad in an American Chevy.
Many of the mourners were dressed in black, and they carried Iraqi flags and the flags of Iran-backed terror groups that are fiercely loyal to Soleimani.
Qassem Soleimani was eliminated in a drone strike at Baghdad International Airport. The White House said President Trump ordered the strike in the early hours of Friday.
He was targeted while being driven from Baghdad airport by local Iran-backed terrorists, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes, a close Soleimani associate.
Arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani was plotting a series of attacks that endangered American troops and officials.
Soleimani and his terrorists were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more.
Soleimani was the architect of Iran’s regional policy of mobilizing troops across Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.
During the Iraq war, it was Soleimani’s units that provided Iraqi terrorists with specially made bombs that could penetrate armor, a deadly weapon against American forces.
As tensions soared across the region, there were reports overnight of an airstrike on a convoy of Iran-backed terrorists north of Baghdad. Hours later, the Iraqi army denied any airstrike had taken place. The US-led coalition also denied carrying out any airstrike, but an Iraqi security official said that five terrorists were eliminated and two vehicles were destroyed.
