Amid the largest protests in Iran over the past four decades, the regime has decided to praise the third anniversary of the death of Qasem Soleimani which is not comparable with the previous years in any way.
As the head of the regime’s Quds Force, Soleimani led this terror organization in its malign activities aboard, mainly in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.
Over the past three years, the regime tried everything to make a national hero out of him. They compared him with Iran’s famous and patriotic people such as Amir Kabir, Ariobarzanes, Surena, Nader Shah, and even Rais-Ali Delvari and Mirza Kuchik Khan. But this was not enough for them, and they compared him with Che Guevara.
This amount of propaganda shows the regime’s critical and chaotic situation. But the truth is that he is infamous for countless crimes against the people of Iran and the entire Middle East. He is known for the chemical attacks against the Syrian people.
With Bashar Assad, he is responsible for the death of more than 500 thousand Syrian people and the displacement of more than eleven million. Therefore, many Syrians have recognized him as a ruthless child killer.
He was responsible for the waste of Iran people’s wealth in the regime’s exterritorial malign activities. Heshmatollah Falahatpishe a former regime’s MP once said: “I repeat again, we gave Syria about 20 to 30 billion dollars, and we must get it back. The money of this nation has been spent there.”
It is not without reason that on the third anniversary of his death, the youths of Iran set fire to his statues, placards, and banners.
Some of the crimes committed by this criminal are as follows:
- Participation in the suppression of the people of Kurdistan in 1980 by Khomeini’s fatwa
