According to Iran’s Fars News Agency, the rogue nation has officially issued an “arrest warrant” for President Donald Trump.
The announcement from Iran comes in response for President Trump’s decision to kill top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani back in January. At the time of his death, Soleimani was the number one wanted terrorist in the world.
Fars News Agency reports that officials in Iran announced “red alerts” were issued for President Trump along with 35 other people from other countries. Iran stated that President Trump “stands at the top of the list and will be prosecuted” after office.
“Thirty-six individuals who have been involved or ordered the assassination of Hajj Qassem, including the political and military officials of the U.S. and other governments, have been identified and arrest warrants have been issued for them by the judiciary officials and red alerts have also been issued for them via the Interpol,” Tehran’s Prosecutor-General Ali Alqasi Meh said.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Trump ordered the U.S. military to launch an airstrike near Baghdad International Airport that took out Soleimani, who was then the leader of Iran’s Quds Force, an elite unit of the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps. Trump and other U.S. officials said Soleimani was responsible to orchestrating attacks by Iranian-backed militias in Iraq, both against U.S. troops and contractors.
Days after the airstrike, Iran retaliated by launching missiles at U.S. forces stationed at Iraq’s al-Asad Air Base, injuring U.S. military members, some of whom suffered traumatic brain injuries.
Back in January after Soleimani was killed, retired Gen. David Petraeus praised President Trump, saying that the significance in killing the Iranian general was “impossible to overstate.”
“It’s impossible to overstate the significance of the attack that takes out Qassem Soleimani and the number two militia leader in Iraq as well, who also never dared to set foot in Iraq during the surge after we’ve missed him and he escaped,” Petraeus said, referring to No. 2 leader Iraqi paramilitary chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. “So this is bigger than bin Laden. It’s bigger than Baghdadi,” he said of the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, who U.S. forces took out last October.”
“The people are demonstrating on the streets and in unprecedented numbers since the revolution against the economic deprivation, the lack of employment opportunities and the plummeting of their quality of life. So, they’re not- by the way, they’re not that invested in the kinds of Iranian adventures that have been funded and carried out by the Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force under the leadership of Qassem Soleimani.”
