In a devastating incident, two bomb explosions rocked the southeastern city of Kerman during a ceremony commemorating the anniversary of General Soleimani’s burial. The blasts occurred at the cemetery where Soleimani, a prominent Iranian figure killed in a US drone strike in 2020, is laid to rest. The ceremony drew hundreds of attendees who were walking towards the tomb when the explosions occurred, resulting in more than 100 casualties and numerous injuries.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks at this point, leaving the authorities and the public in search of answers. The incident marks a tragic turn of events during the solemn occasion, as Soleimani was widely regarded as one of Iran’s most influential figures, second only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Investigations are underway to uncover the perpetrators behind this devastating act.
