Iran Issued Warrant Of Arrest for Donald Trump Over Death of Qassem Soleimani
The death of Qassem Soleimani seems to be raising dust as the government of Iran has issued an arrest warrant for United States President Donald Trump for his role in the killing Iranian general.
On the 3rd of January 2020, a United States drone strike near Baghdad International Airport targeted and killed Iranian major general Qassem Soleimani of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) while he was purportedly planned to meet Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi in Baghdad.
Gen. Qassem was killed along with several officials from Iraqi militias backed by Tehran when an American MQ-9 Reaper drone fired missiles into a convoy that was leaving the airport.
The death of Iranian general brought more tension to the already strained relationship between the United State of America and the People Republic of Iran.
As a retaliation militias from Iran backed by Tehran carried out a number of rocket attacks on the US military base in Iraq, killing a number of US soldiers, although Washington denied the death of US soldiers.
Tehran has in the early hours of today issued a warrant of arrest for Donald Trump the US President over his role that led to the death of the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.
Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said today (Jun 29) that Trump, along with more than 30 others, who he claimed are involved in the January 3 attack that killed General Qassem Soleimani, face “murder and terrorism charges”.
Alqasimehr said that Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.
