United States of America President Donald Trump has warned the Islamic Republic of Iran that he will “HIT VERY FAST AND HARD” on Iranian targets if it dares attack America.
President Trump said the US has identified 52 Iranian sites, some “at a very high level and important to Iran and the Iranian culture” that will be targeted for attack.
Trump issued the threats through microblogging site Twitter, at a time when there is simmering tension between the two rivals.
On Saturday, a huge funeral procession for General Soleimani was held in Baghdad, the Iraqi capital, where he was killed in a targeted drone strike on Friday as he left the airport in a convoy.
Mourners waved Iraqi and militia flags and chanted “death to America”.
The US killed the 62-year-old Soleimani because he was the head of Iran’s Middle East operations as head of the elite Quds Force.
The US had branded the commander and the Quds Force terrorists, holding them responsible for the deaths of hundreds of US personnel.
At the time of his death, General Soleimani was widely seen as the second most powerful figure in Iran, behind Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
