According to Iranian State TV, at least 35 mourners have been killed during a stampede at late arch-terrorist and IRGC head Qassam Soleimani’s funeral procession. But that body count has just been bumped up to 40.
The stampede has also left 48 injured in the town of Kerman, Soleimani’s hometown where he is scheduled to be buried in a “martyrs’ cemetery”.
The funeral is happening as a top Iranian security official warned that the Islamic Republic is contemplating 13 “revenge scenarios” following Soleimani’s assassination, reports the semi-official Fars news agency.
Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, said: “The Americans should know that until now 13 revenge scenarios have been discussed in the council and even if there is consensus on the weakest scenario carrying it out can be a historic nightmare for the Americans.”
