Bangladeshis dispute narrative on the killing of General

People in Bangladesh have protested the United States’ assassination of top Iranian anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.

The protesters held banners and chanted slogans against the US and its interventionist policies in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka on Friday.

“This America killed our beloved brother, top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, in Baghdad,” said Ashraful Haq, a protester. “I want to say to the people of Bangladesh that America and Israel are the enemy of Muslims.”

The demonstrators also praised Soleimani for his role in fighting the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group, which had once swept over large parts of Iraq and Syria but which lost the territories in operations under the command of Lt. Gen. Soleimani.

“Qassem Soleimani is the reason Daesh got destroyed in Iraq and Syria,” read a placard held by the demonstrators.

The US military launched a drone strike outside the Baghdad Airport last Friday, assassinating Soleimani, who led the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC). The attack also killed a number of Soleimani’s Iranian and Iraqi comrades, notably Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was the deputy head of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU).

The assassination of Soleimani and his comrades have led to major anti-American protests across Iraq and Iran. Smaller protests have also been held in countries across the region and other parts of the world.

On Wednesday, the IRGC responded to the assassination by firing ballistic missiles at the US-run Ain al-Assad airbase in Iraq’s Anbar Province and another outpost operated by American forces in Erbil, the capital of the semi-autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan.
