U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to retaliate a thousandfold more on any Iranian attack that could be launched in retaliation for the assassination of Revolutionary Guard General Qasem Soleimani. He wrote about it on his Twitter page.
вЂњAccording to media reports, Iran may be preparing an assassination or other attack on the United States in retaliation for the assassination of terrorist leader Soleimani,вЂќ he wrote, adding that any attack from Iran in any form would be attacked a thousand times larger.
Earlier in July, Iranian leader Ali Khamenei said that Iran would not forgive the Americans for the murder of Soleimani and would certainly answer them properly. He emphasized that in any country from the presence of the Americans there is nothing but trouble and destruction.
On January 3, a US airstrike on Baghdad airport killed the General of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Qasem Soleimani. In response, Tehran fired dozens of missiles at American targets in Iraq on the night of January 8. The operation that took place was named вЂњMartyr of Suleimani". The United States declared no casualties and minimal damage to military bases.
The Pentagon noted that the order to kill Soleimani was personally given by Donald Trump. This idea to the American leader could have been submitted by Secretary of State Michael Pompeo. The United States believed that the general was involved in the attacks on the coalition bases and the American embassy in Baghdad.
