Office of Grand Ayatollah Shirazi in Lebanon Honors Martyrs of Tuwayreej Ritual

The Office of Grand Shia Jurist Ayatollah Shirazi in the Lebanese Capital, Beirut held a memorial service to honor the martyrs of the Tuwayreej ritual held in holy Karbala in this year’s Ashura Day. The memorial service was held on Thursday morning, Muharram 19th, and it was attended by various cultural and religious figures, including Sheikh Jalal Maash, the representative of Grand Ayatollah Shirazi. It is worth noting that earlier this year on Muharram 10th, more than 30 Shia pilgrims were martyred during a stampede in the annual ritual of Tuwayreej in holy Karbala, Iraq.
