Iran has issued an arrest warrant against US President Donald Trump and 35 others for the murder of high-ranking Qassem Soleimani and has asked for help from Interpol, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday, according to the report. press agency Fars.
The United States killed Soleimani, head of the Qods Force of the Revolutionary Guards, in a drone strike in Iraq on January 3. Washington has accused Soleimani of orchestrating attacks by militias aligned on Iran against American forces in the region.
Alqasimehr said the warrants were issued for murder and terrorist action. He said Iran had asked Interpol to issue a “red notice” for Trump and the other individuals the Islamic Republic accuses of having participated in the murder of Soleimani.
Alqasimehr said the group included other US military and civilian officials, but did not provide further details.
He said Iran would continue to pursue the case after Trump’s term ends.
Soleimani’s murder 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.
