Iran has issued arrest warrants against US President Donald Trump and 35 others in connection with the killing of its commander Qassem Soleimani.

According to the details, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr had said that warrants had been issued against Donald Trump and others for murder and terrorism charges

He said Iran had asked Interpol to issue “red notices” to Donald Trump and others accused of involvement in the assassination of Qassem Soleimani.

He said that besides Donald Trump, other people included US military and civilian officers, however, he did not give further details in this regard.

Ali Alqasimehr said that Iran would continue to pursue the issue even after the end of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Note that Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guards, was assassinated in a US drone strike in Iraq on January 3 this year.

The United States has said Qassem Soleimani is the mastermind of Iranian-backed militias in attacks on US forces in the region.

Tensions between the two countries escalated after Qassem Soleimani was killed in a US airstrike.

After the death of Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei threatened the United States with dire consequences, called Qassem Soleimani the global face of resistance and declared three days of mourning in the country.

On the same day, US President Donald Trump had said that Major General Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, should have been assassinated long ago.

Iran responded to the attack and attacked the US Iraqi airbase. However, within hours of the attack, it was reported that high-alert Iranian forces had mistakenly blown up a Ukrainian passenger plane flying from Tehran.

All 176 people were killed when the plane crashed.

The Ukrainian prime minister confirmed that 176 people were on board, including 167 passengers and nine crew members.
