Damascus, Embassy of Iraq in Damascus held on Tuesday a condolence tent on the martyrdom of Deputy chairman of Iraqi Popular Mobilization Committee Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and a number of comrades.

Al-Muhandis and his comrades were martyred on Friday in a US air aggression on their car near Baghdad International Airport.

Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad, Syria's Grand Mufti Ahmad Badre al-Din Hassoun, several army officers and a number of ambassadors accredited in Damascus attended the condolence ceremony.

The crime of assassinating Al-Muhandis and his comrades, at the hands of US administration, is a state terrorism and a crime against humanity and a flagrant defiance of Iraq sovereignty, Mikdad said in a press statement.
