Funeral procession held for fallen soldier 

April 27, 2019 - 12:37

A massive funeral procession was held on Friday in Tehran for a soldier, Majid Qorbankhani, martyred in January 2016 while fighting terrorists in Syria. 

Qorbankhani was a “defender of the shrine” whose body was discovered and returned to the country just recently.  

Defender of the shrine is a term used in Iran as a general reference to those who are martyred in Syria and Iraq in the war against terrorist groups such as Daesh, al-Nusra Front and some other shadowy groups.
