News item: The Iranian Cultural Center in Deir Ezzor organized an entertainment event last Friday, targeting the city's children and their families, as part of the Iranian militias' attempts to implant Shiite culture in the minds of children.
Hajj Rasool, who is in charge of the cultural center, sent invitations to a large number of children and their families to attend the event. The event included a play for children, in addition to a competition that included questions about Iranian personalities such as "Qassem Soleimani" and "Khomeini".
However, despite the many invitations made by the center to the children of Deir Ezzor and their families, the attendance was small. This was due to the rejection of the majority of the city's residents, who refused to attend the event due to the cultural center's attempts to approach them.
The Iranian militias in Syria are known for working to promote Shiite culture and spread it among civilians. This is done by organizing cultural and entertainment events, as well as through their own media channels. However, these militias have faced sharp criticism from local residents and human rights organizations for their attempts to impose their culture on local communities.
