Tehran. Crowd shouts ″ Death to America ″ and Ayatollah weeps at Soleimani’s coffin


Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, prayed and wept Monday near the coffins of General Qassem Soleimani and others killed in the US attack on Baghdad on Friday during the funeral ceremonies in Tehran.

Khamenei, who had a close relationship with Soleimani, wept during traditional Muslim prayers for the dead.

Soleimani’s successor to Iran’s elite Al-Quds force, Esmail Ghaani, joined Ali Khamenei, as did Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and other leaders of the Islamic Republic during the funeral ceremonies.

Hundreds of thousands of people attending the funeral act also mourned the death of the Iranian general.

Qassem Soleimani’s daughter Zeinab directly threatened an attack on the US military in the Middle East while speaking to a crowd in Tehran.

“The families of US soldiers in West Asia … spend the day waiting for their children to die,” said Zeinab.
