Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi has vowed revenge on Donald Trump unless the former US President is tried for the killing of Kasem Soleimani.

A large monument was held in Tehran on Monday for Solei Mani, who was killed in a US drone attack in Iraq in 2020.

At the ceremony, Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi demanded that Trump, the “main invader and murderer,” be “executed and must be executed.”

“The invaders and the main assassins who were then US presidents must face justice and retaliation,” said Raisi, who spoke at Tehran’s largest chapel.

He said Trump had to be punished with former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “and other criminals.”

“Otherwise, I wouldn’t doubt all American leaders that a hand of revenge would come out of Ummah’s sleeve,” Laisi said, referring to the Islamic global community. Said.

Increased tension in the region

A ceremony was also held on Monday to commemorate the second anniversary of the killings at the Palestinian coastal excursion in Gaza.

Later that day, Hassan Nasrara, the leader of the Hezbollah movement to support Iran in Lebanon, was also scheduled to speak.

These events highlight the tensions in the Middle East swayed by Trump’s 2018 decision to unilaterally withdraw the United States from transactions aimed at limiting Tehran’s nuclear program.

Negotiations to revive the 2015 nuclear deal continue in Vienna, allowing Iran to put pressure from outside the negotiations, despite being squeezed by sanctions and a shadow war with Israel. ..

Killing Solei Mani

The night strike destroyed a convoy carrying Solei Mani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, as well as the deputy leader of the Hashed al-Chabi coalition of pro-Iranian armed groups.

Trump’s tensions over Iran’s nuclear program and new painful sanctions have led to an assassination that drives the enemy to the brink of direct military conflict.

Washington said at the time that Solei Mani was planning imminent action against U.S. personnel in Iraq, a country devastated by a long torn war between its major allies, Washington and Tehran. ..

Iran responded a few days later by launching a missile at a base hosting US troops in Iraq. No one was killed, but Washington said dozens had traumatic brain injuries.
