Rouhani designates Jan. 3 as ‘Intl. Resistance Day’

TEHRAN, Jan. 11 (MNA) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced January 3, the date of the martyrdom of Lt. Gen. Qasem Soleimani by US airstrike in Baghdad, as ‘International Resistance Day’.

The announcement came following the United States terrorist forces assassinated Lt. General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s pro-government Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) — better known as Hashd al-Sha’abi — in an airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport early on Friday.

Some believe that the Resistance Front in the region will become stronger after the assassination of Lt. Gen. Qasem Soleimani and al-Muhandis.
