Iran: Statue to Qassem Soleimani Is Unveiled in Official Ceremony in the Morning — Then Torched by Protesters That Night

The supporters of the Iranian opposition movement, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), torched the large and newly dedicated statue of Qassem Soleimani on Wednesday night in Shahrekord, Iran.

Soleimani, the commander of the terrorist Al Quds Force, was killed in a US drone strike last year in Baghdad, Iraq. Soleimani was the mass murderer of the MEK members and the people of Iraq and Syria.

The statue in Shahrekord, was torched at 9:30 pm local time on Wednesday. His statue was unveiled Wednesday morning in the presence of officials of the clerical regime with great fanfare. Several hours later, however, it was set ablaze.

We received the report from a source in Iran. Al-Arabiya also reported on the torching.
