The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, on Friday issued a revenge threat on President Donald Trump of the United States of America over the death of Qosem Soleimani. He vowed that there will be consequences.
ROYAL NWWS gathered that the decision was contained in a statement issued by the Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, condemning the killing.
The deceased, a topmost Iranian commander, who was killed in air raids by the U ited States has triggered a wave of emotions and garnered a response of solidarity and retribution across the otherwise divided Iranian political spectrum.
Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) Quds Force and mastermind of its regional influence, was killed early on Friday near Baghdad’s international airport in an air strike ordered by US President Donald Trump.
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei paid tribute to him as a “martyr” and promised to exact “harsh revenge”.
He announced a three-day national mourning period in honour of Soleimani, who was widely believed to be the second most powerful figure in Iran.
