After several days of mass demonstrations in Tehran, it is peaceful now and the citizens carry out their regular activities. Schools, colleges, public and private institutions, urban transport and more are operating at full capacity, the Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Islamic Republic of Iran stated.
They added that the Embassy is in constant contact with the BiH’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as with BiH citizens temporarily residing in the country.
All of them, as previously reported, are well and orderly fulfilling their planned commitments. According to official data from the Embassy, there are currently a total of 19 citizens of Bosnia-Herzegovina in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
While U.S. lawmakers have branded Qassem Soleimani a terrorist, the late Iranian general’s significance to the Iranian people was on full display on state TV and in the streets of Tehran. Many Iranians reacted with anger to the killing of Soleimani, the leader of the foreign wing of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), by a U.S. airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport Friday.
In the immediate aftermath of the general’s killing, which the U.S. Department of Defense confirmed Friday had been authorized by President Trump, multiple media outlets and reporters in the Middle East reported that Iranian state television had stopped all scheduled broadcasts and, instead, cut to the Islamic prayer for the dead: “From God we came, and to God we return.”
There were tears and anger over the killing on Iranian state media. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, called Soleimani “the international face of resistance” in a statement on state TV, the Associated Press reported. Iranian military spokesman Ramezan Sharif broke down in tears on live television.
