Chopping off the Ayatollah's right fist, Qassem Soleimani

Soleimani was killed by an American Drone and his coffin was driven in an American Chevy pickup.

This is the moment Iranian Quds force commander Qassem Soleimani was blown up in a US drone strike at Baghdad airport ordered by President Trump.  

CCTV footage filmed close to the airport and shared by Iraqi TV station AhadTV shows a large explosion as one of the two cars was destroyed by precision missiles fired by a Reaper drone early on Friday morning. 

Soleimani's body was torn to pieces in the attack and a senior politician said his remains could only be identified by the ring he wore on his left hand.

A grisly image which circulated on Iranian media in the aftermath purported to show the ring on Soleimani's bloodied severed hand and bears strong similarities to the ruby ring worn by him in other photos, however it is not a precise match and fellow victim Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis also wore similar jewellery.

An image which circulated on Iranian media in the aftermath purporting to show Quds commander Qassem Soleimani's hand after the strike in the early hours of Friday. Two officials from the Iran-backed People's Mobilzation Forces (PMF) said Soleimani's body was torn to pieces in the attack and a senior politician said his body could only be identified by the ring he wore on his left hand. The ring bears strong similarities to the ruby ring worn on Soleimani's left hand in other photos, however it is not a precise match and fellow victim Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis wore similar jewellery.
