Iran: At least 56 terror fans killed, 212 wounded during a stampede at Soleimani’s funeral in Kerman
BREAKING: At least 56 people have been killed and 212 others injured in a stampede that erupted at a funeral procession for arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani, who was eliminated in a US airstrike last week in Iraq.
Iranian state television says the stampede erupted in Kerman, the hometown of Soleimani where the procession was underway.
The burial ceremony scheduled for Tuesday afternoon was canceled after the deaths, the head of the committee overseeing the process told the Isna news agency.
Earlier, the leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard terror group threatened to set ablaze places supported by the US over the elimination of Soleimani, prompting a crowd of terror fans to chant the traditional “death to Israel” and “death to America”.
Commander Salami made the pledge before thousands gathered in Kerman, Soleimani’s hometown. Terror fans dressed in black carried posters bearing the image of the arch-terrorist chief of Iran’s extra-territorial terror group Quds Force.
“We will take revenge. We will set ablaze where they like,” Salami told the crowd, drawing the chants of “Death to Israel!”.
