Hundreds of Iranians held a protest after Friday prayers today condemning the death of terrorist Imad Mughniyeh.
The Iranian Republic News Agency reported:
Hundreds of Tehrani Friday prayers worshipers on Friday staged demonstrations to condemn the Zionist Regime’s recent crime of assassinating Hizbollah senior commander Imad Mughniyah.
The worshipers, among whom there were political, religious, state and military officials, ventured rainy wheather and took part in the demonstration to condemn the savage act of the Quds occupying Regime.
Chanting anti-Israel and anti-US slogans on their way to Palestine Square from Tehran University, the marchers called on the international communities, including the UN, to break silence against such merciless acts.
