For revenge, the Iranian authorities chose an ambassador who has been friends with the American leader for a long time.
Iran is preparing to assassinate US Ambassador to the Republic of South Africa Lana Marx to avenge the death of General Qasem Soleimani on Washington. This was announced on Sunday, September 13, by the Politico newspaper.
It is noted that information about the conspiracy appeared in the spring, but recently specific details of the operation have become known.
A representative of the American special services, as indicated in the article, admits involvement in the assassination attempt of the head of the United States diplomatic mission in South Africa.
The likely reason why it was Lana Marks who was chosen for the murder is that she has been friends with US President Donald Trump for a long time.
At the same time, the attempt on the specified ambassador is only one of the options for revenge on the part of Iran, the article says.
Recall that the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, General Qasem Soleimani, died on the night of January 3 as a result of a US missile strike near the Baghdad airport. The White House noted that Soleimani and his supporters were preparing to kill many American diplomats and soldiers.
Soon, Iran's Supreme National Security Council presented 13 options for Washington's response to the assassination of Soleimani. According to the Secretary of the Security Council Ali Shamkhani, вЂњeven the most forgiving of them could become a historic nightmare for the United States.
