Iran has just issued an arrest warrant again the United States president Donald Trump and 35 others over the assassination of top general Qassem Soleimani and has requested Interpol for aid, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr maintained on Monday, according to the Fars news agency.
The United States killed Soleimani, leader of the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force, with a drone strike in Iraq on Jan. 3. Washington challenged Soleimani of engineering assaults by Iranian-aligned militias on U.S. forces in the region.
He said Iran would continue to pursue the matter after Trump’s time in office ends.
The killing of Soleimani brought the United States and Iran to the brink of armed conflict after Iran retaliated by firing missiles at American targets in Iraq several days later.
