VIDEO: Iranian Regime Flies Red Flag of Revenge Over Dome in Holy City of Qom — Symbol of Battle to Come
On Thursday the United States killed General Qassim Soleimani, a top commander of Iran’s al-Quds Force, in an airstrike at Baghdad’s International Airport. The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces. Seven people were reportedly killed in the airstrike.
The Iranian regime threatened retaliation against the United States for taking out their top terrorist.
Iranian General Gholamali Abuhamzeh, the commander of the Guards in the southern province of Kerman, told Al-Arabiya Iran will “punish Americans wherever they are within reach.”
And today in the holy city of Qom a red flag flew over the dome.
There are reports that this is the first time the red flag has flown over the mosque.
We cannot verify that at this time.
First Time In The History, Red Flag Unfurled Over The Holy Dome Of Jamkarān Mosque, Qom Iran.

As a #Shia religious symbol, “Red flag” means “the blood whose revenge has not been taken yet”. So you see the flag of Imam Hussein’s shrine in Karbala is still red (as long as Mehdi has not avenged his killing). https://t.co/qyfVSBMZDr
