Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 6, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure.

The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
