Europe honors Gen. Soleimani: Posters adorn cities across Italy

The European Solidarity Front for Syria (ESFS) -- which launched the campaign in honor of Gen. Soleimani -- plastered the late general’s face on posters across Italy.

Hawzah News Agency (Rome - Italy) - A European group has launched a remembrance campaign across Italy for Iranian Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani who was assassinated by US forces in Iraq in January.

The European Solidarity Front for Syria (ESFS) -- which launched the campaign in honor of Gen. Soleimani -- plastered the late general’s face on posters across Italy.

Photos emerged from Rome, Milan and Turin depicting Gen. Soleimani, with social media users reacting with praise.

One poster, placed on a signpost outside the Colosseum in Rome, read: "In honor of Qassem Soleimani".

Written alongside the photo was: "There is another paradise. That is the battle scene. The battlefield of your homeland."

On its Facebook page, the ESFS wrote the campaign was aimed at honoring "the memory of a man whose commitment and dedication to the cause of the freedom and sovereignty of nations has moved and inspired millions of free men and women in the world."

"General Soleimani represented and still represents one of the most important examples of a patriot at the service of that ideal that never in the world, directly or indirectly, a nation could hinder the legitimate autonomy of another nation or oppress a people opposed to it," the ESFS wrote on its Facebook page.

The group also described Gen. Soleimani’s assassination as an "unjustifiable act of barbarism and prevarication".

US forces assassinated General Soleimani, the former commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy head of Iraq’s Hashd al-Sha’abi, and their companions by targeting their car outside Baghdad International Airport on January 3.

The terror attack took place under the direction of US President Donald Trump, with the Pentagon taking responsibility for the strike.

Both commanders were admired by Muslim nations for eliminating the US-sponsored Daesh terrorists in the region. General Soleimani, in particular, was an international figure who played a leading role in promoting peace and security in the region, particularly in Iraq and Syria.
