Giant Soleimani statue unveiled by Hezbollah in Lebanon near Israel border
STEPANAKERT, FEBRUARY 18, ARTSAKHPRESS: The figure of the slain commander of the elite Quds Force was put up in the border village of Maroun al-Ras by members of the Iran-backed Shiite terror group Hezbollah. The statue sits on top of a monument created as part of the “resistance museum.” Soleimani’s figure points with its hand toward Israel, an apparent reference to Hezbollah’s stated plan to take over the Galilee region, and to the Quds Force’s key role in the terror group’s preparations for a potential military confrontation with the Jewish state. Soleimani and eight others were killed in a January 3 US drone strike outside Baghdad’s International Airport.
