Statue of Qassem Soleimani pointing towards The Holy Quds unveiled along Lebanese-Israeli border

A statue commemorating the late commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Major-General Qassem Soleimani, was unveiled along the Lebanese-Israeli border this past weekend.

During a ceremony in Maroun Al-Ras, which is along the Lebanese-Israeli border, a statue of Soleimani pointing towards Jerusalem was unveiled to a crowd watching from a nearby observation post.

Tensions between Washington and Tehran escalated on January 3rd after the U.S. assassinated Soleimani and the Deputy Commander of the Popular Mobilization Forces of Iraq, Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes, near the Baghdad International Airport.

Following this attack, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) launched several missiles towards two Iraqi bases that host the U.S. forces in the Kirkuk and Al-Anbar governorates.
