Donald Trump: Iran "withdraws" after missile strikes on Iraqi military bases

Donald Trump: Iran

The head of Iran's elite Quds Force Esmail Ghaani, who replaced Qassem Soleimani after he was killed in a USA strike, says there are many around the world ready to avenge his death, continuing Tehran's threats amid spiking tensions.

Iranian General Qassem Suleimani was killed on January 3, 2020 in Baghdad as a result of a targeted air strike by the US Air Force.

The murder of Soleimani on January 3 at Baghdad airport led Iran to take revenge with rocket attacks against U.S. troops in Iraq days later and nearly caused a broad war between the two countries. Except the opposite might also be true, since Trump said Soleimani was targeting an embassy.

Trump delivered the account Friday night to Republican Party donors gathered at his Florida residence Mar-a-Lago for a fundraising dinner, USA media said.

The judge must be satisfied that it meets the key test of double criminality before agreeing to an extradition. According to court documents, Huawei allegedly controlled the operations of Skycom in Iran.

In doing so, President Trump generated but extra confusion and discord among the many national-security brass that had already struggled to promote the American of us on its case for the strike that correct introduced Iran and the United States to the precipice of all-out battle.

There were no casualties reported in the reprisal attacks, and Iran was reported to have notified the facilites well in advance. The Washington Post reported earlier this month that the talking point for Trump's "four embassies" has come up against assessments of intelligence from Trump's own officials. The briefers were also supposed to deepen what the USA secret service had said before the strike.

"They're together sir", Trump said he was told of the two leaders. "Sir, they have two minutes and 11 seconds". He claimed that Soleimani "was saying bad things about our country". No emotion. "Two minutes and 11 seconds to live, sir". While some Iraqis support the call, others see the continued presence of the US-led coalition in Iraq as vital to protecting the country against the Islamic State (IS) group and other militia groups. They are in the auto, they are in an armored vehicle. Sir, they have approximately one minute to live, sir. The Pentagon is also refusing to comply with the decision of the Iraqi Parliament for the withdrawal of US troops.

Iran promised "severe revenge" after Soleimani's killing, with Tehran firing a salvo of missiles at two military bases in Iraq housing USA forces.
