them of #Soleimani , one of the main causes of their tragedy. Syrians in #Idlib, the last province under
control of anti-Asad/Iran forces, celebrate the elimination of Qassem Sulaymani, one of
the men most responsible for the murder, displacement, and destruction in #Syria over the last nine
years. Syrians hand out sweets in Idlib countryside
to celebrate the killing of Soleimani. Thread: Syrians celebrating the death of Soleimani 1. Syrians handing out sweets to celebrate
the death of Soleimani. — Eve (@HolisticMuslim) January 3, 2020 From MiddleEastEye Late on Thursday, American air strikes killed
Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s secretive Quds Force, and seven of his associates. The Trump administration justified the strikes,
first describing Soleimani as a ruthless killer, and then by saying that the raid was in response
to “imminent threats to American lives.” However, throughout Friday, Syrians in Idlib
could be seen celebrating their foe’s demise by handing out Arab sweets and delicacies.
Several displaced Syrians told Middle East Eye that they were celebrating because under
Soleimani’s instruction, pro-Syrian government forces besieged a number of rebel-held towns
and cities, starving them into capitulation. “We ate cats during the siege and residents
gave up their cars in exchange for a couple kilogrammes of rice,” said Burhan, a civilian
who fled the city of Zabadani in the Damascus countryside to Idlib. “Many died of starvation because of Soleimani
and his militia.” Muhannad al-Yamani, a displaced Syrian told
MEE, that he was “thrilled” when news broke of Soleimani’s death. “We were pleased because he is one of the
main reasons behind the displacement of many Syrians, especially those from Aleppo. He
led operations against the free people of Syria in many cities. In Idlib, Aleppo, Homs
and even Damascus. He had a big role in the killing of children and women and the displacement
of many. God has punished him.”

  1. This is no fair reporting. Celebrating Soleimani's death in Syria? No, celebrating this death in Idlib..! That is something VERY DIFFERENT.

  2. It was only Syrians celebrating, there’s many videos showing Iraqies celebrating the same night the general was killed. Google it!
