The Arabic-language Facebook page of the IDF's office of Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories mocked Iranian General Qassem Soleimani's possible speech in the Gaza Strip today.

"We wonder what topics he'll talk about," the post said. "Is it about developing the Gaza strip? Renovating buildings and houses? Increase the supply of #electricity? #Water? Help the needy?"

"Gazans, wake up! This is your wake-up call before the Gaza strip turns into #Tehran," the post continued.

Social media users in Arabic have mentioned that Soleimani will come to Gaza to deliver his speech, but the information has not been confirmed by official Iranian, Israeli, or Palestinian sources.

Soleimani, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, is Iran's most senior military commander and the principle architect of the Islamic Republic's military involvement in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and elsewhere in the Middle East.
