Baghdad, Beirut Pay Tribute to Iranian, Iraqi Martyred Commanders

Murals of two martyred Iranian and Iraqi commanders were erected in Lebanese and Iraqi capitals, carrying a message to the American occupiers, as the second anniversary of their assassination by a US drone strike approaches.

As the second anniversary of their martyrdom approaches, the murals of Lt. General Qassem Soleimani, the then commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force, and his Iraqi companion Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were installed on the road leading to Lebanon’ capital airport.

At the same time, another billboard was erected in Baghdad’s Ferdows Square, entitled “From now on, they will not be safe, we will never allow them to stay.”

General Soleimani and his Iraqi trenchmate Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, were assassinated along with their companions in a US drone strike authorized by then-US president Donald Trump near Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020.

Both commanders were admired by Muslim nations for eliminating the US-sponsored Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in the region, particularly in Iraq and Syria.
