Thousands had gathered to mark the four-year anniversary of the ruthless commander's assassination when the explosions erupted near the Saheb al-Zaman Mosque. The explosions came a day after an Israeli drone strike killed Hamas deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri in Lebanon's capital Beirut amid fears war could soon spiral across the Middle East. Mystery surrounds who is behind today's blasts, but they came less than 24 hours after an Israeli drone strike killed Arouri in Beirut, Lebanon. The strike that killed Soleimani unfolded on January 3, 2020 close to Baghdad airport. Last night, an Israeli drone strike on Hamas' offices in Beirut killed four of the terror group's members including Arouri, its deputy political leader.
