Iranians set terrorist IRGC commander Ghasem Soleimani’s statue on fire

statue of former terrorist IRGC Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani was torched on Wednesday night by unidentified Iranian civilians in Shahrekord in western Iran, according to the Iranian ISNA news agency. 

Video reportedly from the scene on Wednesday night showed the statue engulfed in a pillar of fire in the middle of a roundabout.

The statue of Soleimani, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander, had just been unveiled on Wednesday morning. The six-meter tall statue was worth about 150 million Tomans or about $35,500, according to ISNA.

This is not the first time a statue of the former Quds Force commander has been torched in Iran.

Mohammad Ali Nekounam, the representative of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the Friday prayer leader of Shahrekord, compared the burning of the statue to the assassination of Soleimani, saying “this crime in the dark of night is like the same crime in Baghdad airport that in the privacy of the night and at the height of cowardice, and it will make Hajj Qasim position in the hearts more stable.”

Despite continuous efforts by Iran’s state-run media to glorify Ghasem Soleimani and hide crimes committed by him and the terrorist IRGC in Iran and other regional countries, Iranian citizens by large reject the terrorist designated IRGC, its commanders, and propaganda to the point that they continue to torch Ghasem Soleimani’s statues less than a day after they are constructed.

Soleimani was assassinated by a US drone strike next to the Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020. The second anniversary of the assassination was marked this week.

Iran’s state-sponsored propaganda to hide the truth of the regime’s terrorist activities no longer works on Iranian citizens who are denied their most basic human rights by the Islamic Republic and its mafia organizations such as the terrorist IRGC.
