A plane carrying the body of a slain general has landed in western Iran. The funeral will be held in Kerman on January 7.
The body of Iranian General Kasem Suleimani, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq, was taken to Iran, where a farewell ceremony is being held. This is reported by Kommersant with reference to the agency ISNA.
The general’s funeral will be held in Kerman on January 7. The agency added that the plane carrying the dead general’s body landed in Ahwaz in western Iran.
Recall, on Friday, January 3, it became known that the U.S. conducted an operation in Iraq to eliminate Iranian General Kasem Suleimani. The missile strike on the convoy, which was followed by the military commander, was ordered by Trump.
Iranian authorities have accused Washington of international terrorism and vowed to avenge Suleimani’s death.
