Members of Toronto’s Iranian community say the news that Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani was killed in a targeted attack by the United States at Baghdad’s international airport Friday means the world is a safer place.
Soleimani led Iran’s elite Quds Force that is responsible for the country’s foreign campaigns. The strike also killed many of Soleimani’s associates.
A demonstration by Iranian Canadians supporting the strike took place at Mel Lastman Square in Toronto Friday afternoon.
“I am part of the Canadian-Iranian community celebrating the elimination of one of the most notorious authorities in Iran,” protester Hosein Beyzaei told Global News at the demonstration.
“We are facing a world with one less criminal. This is good news for the region, for democracy, for freedom and as a Canadian-Iranian I definitely feel this is good news for our community in Canada as well.”
