BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Prime Minister, Imad Khamis made a trip to Tehran with several high-level government officials on Sunday to meet with their Iranian counterparts.

“Today, a high-level government delegation headed by Prime Minister Imad Khamis, began a trip to the Iranian capital, Tehran, during which they will discuss with senior officials there the current bilateral relations between the two countries and work to strengthen them at all levels, as well as accelerating developments in the regional and international arenas,” Al-Watan reported, quoting a diplomatic source.

The Al-Watan source said that consultation and coordination between the two countries at this stage is necessary because after the assassination of Qassem Soleimani, the two allies need to strengthen their alliance.

The newspaper added that the delegation will include in the foreign and defense ministers.

On Friday, January 2nd, the U.S. military carried out an attack near the Baghdad International Airport, resulting in the assassination of the Quds Force commander, Major-General Qassem Soleimani, and the Deputy Commander of the Popular Mobilization Units, Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes.

Iran responded to these assassinations by targeting the U.S. military’s positions at two bases inside of Iraq. The attack primarily targeted the ‘Ayn Al-Assad Airbase, which hosts the second largest U.S. military contingetn in Iraq.

Meanwhile …
Outside Tehran’s Amir Kabir Univ. Iran Riot police shoot tear gas at students. Students say the government and says security forces “are mistakenly” shooting tear gas at “mourners” referring to the government saying the downing of flight PS572 was a mistake.
Students are chanting, “I will kill those who killed my brother” referring to the government’s downing of flight PS752 that killed a large number of Iranian students and also “death to liars”, “we want want justice”
Note that, according to FARS-News, protesters in Tehran have torn pictures of Qassem Soleimani.

Tear gas is being hurdled out them weekly and they keep marching. Hardly any western media coverage given to these events and I did not see the British Ambassador whipping up the crowds.
