Leader’s Twitter account posts warning over assassination of Gen. Soleimani

Leader’s Twitter account posts warning over assassination of Gen. Soleimani

The office of the Leader of Iran posted a photomontage of former US president Donald Trump playing golf under the shadow of a warplane alongside a pledge to avenge a deadly 2020 drone strike he ordered.

The post on Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei’s @khamenei_site Twitter account late Thursday warned there was no escape from payback for the US strike outside Baghdad airport which assassinated Iran’s top commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, AFP reported.

“Revenge is inevitable. Soleimani’s killer and the man who gave the orders must face vengeance,” it said. “Revenge can take place at any moment.”

Trump left office on Wednesday and flew straight to his Mar-a-Lago golf club in Florida, without attending the inauguration of his successor US President Joe Biden.

Iranian officials have pledged that Soleimani will be avenged.

Earlier this month, on the first anniversary of his assassination, Judiciary Chief Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi warned that not even Trump was “immune from justice” and that Soleimani’s killers would “not be safe anywhere in the world”.
