The Iranian Foreign Ministry has blacklisted 51 more Americans for their roles in the assassination of former military commander Qasem Soleimani.
The Iranian government has released a new list of sanctioned American individuals, including Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley and former National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. The announcement comes in line with implementing Iran’s law on “combating human rights violations and adventurous terrorist acts” committed by US forces throughout the region.”
“It is believed that the designated persons, as a case maybe have taken part in decision making and financing for terrorist acts which threaten international peace & security.”
The former US President, Donald Trump, and Mike Pompeo among others were previously listed to be sanctioned for the same reason according to this statement.
A US drone strike on a convoy killed Soleimani, former commander of the Quds Force in Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and an Iraqi militia leader near Baghdad International Airport.
The attack came just days before Umar Mutahiddakhid was due to meet with American negotiators at Camp Speicher about settling their country’s longstanding border dispute over oil-rich Kirkuk province that has been claimed by both Iraq and Kurdistan since Saddam Hussein was overthrown following Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 – a meeting now seems likelier than ever not happen after all because one person who would be unable to attend is missing: General Muhammad Ali Jafari.
In a speech delivered on January 3 to honor Soleimani’s second death anniversary, President Ebrahim Raisi warned that Trump and Pompeo must be prosecuted for their criminal activity through an appropriate legal process if Iran is going revenge against those involved in or behind this act.
