VIDEO: Iran FM pays tribute to anti-terror commanders

TEHRAN, Feb. 22 (MNA) – Heading a delegation, the Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian paid tribute to the memorial of the martyr Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis upon their arrival at Baghdad 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.
