Military commander: Iran still wants to kill Donald Trump capitals

The leader reiterated that his country wants to kill Trump, in retaliation for the killing of General Qassem Soleimani, which occurred in a US military operation in 2020.

In a televised statement, General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said that Iran is still looking for ways to kill Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo, the former US president and former US Secretary of State. information from France Press agency. The Persian state seeks revenge for the killing of General Qassem Soleimani, who was targeted by an attack carried out by the US armed forces in 2020.

“We hope we can kill Trump, Pompeo, McKenzie and the military leaders who gave the order to kill Soleimani,” said Gen. Hajizadeh, commander of the Revolutionary Guards’ Air Force. It is one of the arms of the Iranian ideological forces. The statement was televised on Friday (24/2).

Kenneth McKenzie is the former director of the US Army’s Central Command in the Middle East. Soleimani was killed on January 3, 2020, nearly three years ago, in a drone strike. At the time, the entourage of the 62-year-old soldier was leaving Baghdad Airport in Iraq. About a year later, Trump left the US presidency, when Democrat Joe Biden took the White House.

Hajizadeh’s announcement was preceded by the broadcast broadcast on Iranian state television on Saturday (25/2) of the launch of a “new Paveh cruise missile with a range of 1,650 kilometers.” The escalation of tensions between Tehran and Washington was precisely the result of the Islamic Republic’s advancing ballistic programs in order to increase the range of its missiles, with the potential to destabilize the Middle East.

Iran is an enemy of Israel, the main ally of the United States in the region. After Soleimani was killed, President Donald Trump claimed that the operation was carried out in response to a series of attacks promoted by Tehran against American targets. Faced with the death of its leader, the Persian state launched missiles at an American air base in Iraq.

This topic continues to drive international debate in the region. Last September, President Ibrahim addressed the head of the United Nations with a picture of Soleimani in his hand. He demanded that Donald Trump be prosecuted for this action. The president said at the time, “The Islamic Republic of Iran does not seek to create or acquire nuclear weapons, and these weapons have no place in our doctrine.”

In 2018, Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the nuclear deal with Iran, which the Persian state signed with the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. The group is made up of the United States along with the United Kingdom, France, China and Russia, as well as Germany. As a result, Washington again imposed sanctions on Tehran.
