تفجيرات عند نصب تذكاري لقاسم سليماني في إيران

January 3, 2024 - قتل أكثر من 100 شخص بانفجار قنبلتين قرب قبر الجنرال الإيراني قاسم سليماني في الذكرى الرابعة لاغتياله على يد الولايات المتحدة.

State broadcaster Irib said dozens more people were wounded when the blasts hit a procession near the Saheb al-Zaman mosque in the southern city of Kerman.

It was not clear who was behind the explosions and there were no immediate claims from any groups.

But Arab separatists, Islamic State (IS) and other Sunni jihadist groups have said they have carried out deadly attacks on security forces and Shia shrines in the country in recent years.

Soleimani was seen as the most powerful figure in Iran after the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, before he was killed in a U.S. drone strike in neighbouring Iraq in 2020, the BBC said.
