General Soleimani, the commander of Quds Force of Iran's IRGC and Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes, the acting commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilisation Units (PMU), along with eight other Iraqi and Iranian military men, were killed last Friday in a US strike in Baghdad ordered by US President, Donald Trump. 

Earlier on Monday, millions of Iranians bade farewell and paid their last respect to Soleimani in Tehran.

State news agency IRNA described Soleimani as "the hero of liberating the Middle East from the vice and wickedness of the US-made terror groups, including Daesh (ISIS").

Millions of Iranians all around the country have been taking to the streets to condemn the ‘terror act of the US’. They are holding the pictures of Soleimani and flags of Iran, chanting "Down with the US" and "Down with Israel".
