TEHRAN, Jan. 02 (MNA) – On the occasion of the anniversary of the assassination of the anti-terror commanders, busts of General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were installed at the Baghdad International Airport.

On January 3, 2020, a US drone strike near Baghdad International Airport assassinated General Soleimani, former commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps. The attack -- that also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) anti-terror group, along with several others -- came while General Soleimani was on an official visit to the Iraqi capital.
