A popular trend among opponents of the Iranian regime involves posting memes on social media mocking Soleimani’s death, describing it as a BBQ, with Soleimani as the kebab.
On Saturday morning, the Iranian regime executed Mohammad Mahdi Karami and Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini, two protesters who had been arrested during the current wave of protests and convicted, without a lawyer, of the murder of Iranian Basij officer Ruhollah Ajamian.
Ajamian died in clashes with protesters on the 40th day following the death of Hadis Najafi, one of many young Iranian women killed by Basij forces in the protests.
So far, the Iranian regime has executed four protesters, including the two this morning.
