Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi also attended a ceremony at a mosque in the Presidential Office complex along with other government and military officials to bid farewell to late Qassemi.
Qassemi’s body was later transferred to a burial place in Tehran and laid to rest.
The former commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Khatam al-Anbiya Construction Headquarters, passed away at the age of 58 on Thursday.
He suffered from cancer and underwent chemotherapy.
Qassemi tendered his resignation last month after his conditions began to deteriorate.
