Protesters condemned the US killing of Iranian Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani at a mass rally gathering was held at Saadallah Al-Jabri Square in the Syrian city of Aleppo on Tuesday. Footage shows demonstrators holding Syrian flags, posters of Soleimani and chanting anti-US slogans.
«We are here today to denounce the awful murder committed by the United States against a group of resistance... Еще leaders on the Iraqi land near the Baghdad airport. This is also a stance to insist that the resistant Syrian nation will continue on the path of those leaders who sacrificed their lives to defend the cause of the whole Arab world. Therefore, we will keep our promise of either martyrdom or a victory. God's willing, it will be the victory,» said an Aleppo resident at the rally.
Soleimani and deputy leader of Iraq's Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF) Mohammed Ali Ebrahimi, also known as Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, were killed in a US drone strike near Baghdad's airport last week prompting retaliatory missile strikes on two US base in Iraq.
