Watch: CNN praising Qassem Soleimani in this old video

The old video has resurfaced and is doing the rounds on the internet, with users questioning the CNN’s reporting after the killing of Soleimani in a US drone attack.
Iran launched retaliatory attack against the US on Wednesday when it fired dozens of missile into Iraq targeting military bases hosting American troops.
