On Monday, Iranian Maj. Gen. Suleimani, who was beheaded by U.S. airstrikes, was buried in Tehran. Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, accompanied by officials such as President Hassan Rouhani, tearfully presided over the prayer.
On Monday morning, a large number of Iranians from all walks of life attended the funeral at Tehran University, according to the Iranian news agency Tasnim. Khamenei burst into tears several times during the prayer service.
In the early hours of January 3, U.S. President Donald Trump ordered an air strike at Iraq's Baghdad airport, killing a number of key figures, including Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps \"Al-Quds\" commander, Suleimani. Iran therefore threatened to \"exact revenge \", the situation in the United States and Iraq for a time tense.
Since the 3rd, countless protesters have also taken to the streets of Tehran to pay tribute to Suleimani, condemn the American attacks and demand revenge. Protesters tore and burned American and Israeli flags, chanting \"Down with America\" and \"America to die.\"
Early in the morning, beijing time, mr. trump re-spoke to iran, threatening to strike 52 of iran's most important targets, including cultural ones, if retaliated.
However, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousawi on Friday came forward to \"cool down,\" saying\" Iran has no intention of going to war with the United States, but is ready for anything.\"
